Do you have a link to that patch? As explained in the submission
guidelines http://wiki.xen.org/wiki/Submitting_Xen_Patches things do
fall through the gaps but it is the submitters responsibility to ping
and resend as necessary.

That's irrelevant unless the people you are trying to communicate with
are regularly checking the BTS, which they are not.

Why would you expect to be more assured of a reply to your mails if a
bug tracker had automatically logged them?

List policy includes retaining copies to people, so you don't need to
subscribe to send a bug report to the list.
