I keep emails under three circumstances:
1) emails pertaining to whatever window we’re in on mainline. Since that’s 6.1, I only have emails pertaining to that.
2) the two most recent stable-rc emails for current stable versions
3) anything I’ve replied to or am Cc’d on

I erase emails each window for number 1, and numbers 2+3 get their emails erased after a month of no activity.

But, I do try to at least skim through everything that comes through LKML so I’m in-the-know, so to speak. (I know, that’s strange, but I’m a fast reader and am very deeply interested in it so it’s never been hard for me to keep up on the list.)
