This ha been a concern of mine for matplotlib as well.  The closest I can
come is to set up an RSS feed, but all the titles are PR # and a action, so
I lose track of which ones I want to view.

All devs get an initial email for each PR, but I cant figure out how to get
that down to the public list and it is hard to know if another dev took
care of the PR or if it is just waiting.

Cheers!
