In some cases notifications may be sent to multiple mailing lists. For instance, changes to the tl forest are sent to compiler-dev, core-libs-dev, serviceability-dev, security-dev, and net-dev. With the reduction in the number of team repos in JDK 9 particularly for client, the number of duplicate push notifications will increase.

I wholeheartedly agree that push notifications should be moved away from the
various *-dev discussion lists and moved onto dedicated change notification
lists, per forest.
If the "master" forest ends up actually being called "master" per my earlier
e-mail then the notification list for it would be jdk9-master-changes.
