Bug#899496: f2fs-tools: Invalid maintainer address filesystems-devel@lists.alioth.debian.org

Christoph Biedl-7
Package: src:f2fs-tools
Version: 1.10.0-1
Severity: serious
User: [hidden email]
Usertag: alioth-lists-maintainer

Dear uploader of f2fs-tools,

as you've probably heard, Debian's alioth services are shutting down.
This affects your package f2fs-tools since the list address
[hidden email] used in the Maintainer: field
was not transferred to the alioth-lists service that provides a
continuation for the lists in the @lists.alioth.debian.org domain.

Addresses that were not migrated have been disabled some time  ago. As
a result your package is now in violation of a "must" in the Debian
policy (3.3, working email address), making it unfit for release.

Please fix this before long. Among other reasons, keep in mind bug
reports and important notifications about your package might not reach
you.

Your options:

* Upload another version with a new maintainer address of your choice,

* Migrate the list to the new system. This is still possible,
  please appoint a Debian developer as a list owner first, then
  contact the alioth lists migration team <[hidden email]>
  and provide all the necessary information.

  More information about the new service can be found here:
  <https://wiki.debian.org/Alioth/MailingListContinuation>

* More options, even if imperfect, can be found at
  <https://wiki.debian.org/Salsa/AliothMigration#Import_mailing_list>


The first option is probably suitable only if the address was used just
in a small number of packages since this requires an upload for each of
them. To our knowledge, the usage count of
[hidden email] is 8.

The second option is available for a limited time only, by end of
May 2018 the most. So if you're interested in going this way, start the
process as soon as possible.

Note, as mails to the maintainer address will not get through, this
bugreport is Cc'ed (X-Debbugs-CC:) to all uploaders of the package.

Regards,

    Christoph and some alioth-lists maintainers

I'd like to volunteer to be the list owner for the filesystems-devel
list and have the list migrated over to the alioth-lists service. What
information do I need to provide to complete this migration? Thank
you!

Vincent
