Makes sense.

Is there any volunteer to create a new warning and fix for Maintainer element
?

(using 'cme meta edit' in libconfig-model-dpkg-perl repo should make this
easier)

All the best

Let's ask the alioth-lists admin (cc'd).
If they prefer it, I'm also all for it of course.
(And then I guess we have to change lots of other tools and
documentation, too …)

Cheers,

I admit I'm not really happy that I stumbled upon this and I'm
personally afraid about the amount of work this would require.  The idea
to contact alioth-lists admins about an explicit statement is good.  It
would be nice to keep things as they are.

Kind regards

     Andreas.

My own take in this is that it's probably not worth changing.
The long-term plan for the service is currently only partially defined,
and whilst alioth-lists.debian.net might outlive lists.alioth.debian.org,
this is not certain, and both dates are several years away. So I wouldn't
rush to make such a change yet, though it might be appropriate eventually.

Cheers,
Dominic.

OK, thanks for clarification.  So I think I'll rather close this bug
until the said years are over.

Kind regards
