I would draw exactly the opposite conclusion.

If the signal to noise ratio here is considered too low, then having the KF5 
discussions here 
* would have increased the signal, and thereby increased the SNR
* IMO would also have decreased the feeled need for the lengthy discussions 
taking place now, since people would feel better informed, which would 
decrease the noise, thereby increasing the SNR

Seriously, IMO it's a "bug" if the core KDE developers don't use kde-core-
devel for communication.


P.S. from my POV, I'm not sure using kde-core-devel for the reviewboard mails 
is really necessary
