Re: Mailing list for messages from launchpad
Personally I see having a separate mailing list as a nicer way to
filter messages cleanly. For example some people (like me) may want to
treat e-mails from Launchpad with a lower priority than those filed
through Debian's BTS. Others may want the opposite, and instead prefer
to hack on Ubuntu bugs rather than the Debian ones.

While it might be relatively easy to do the filtering, I think having
a separate mailing list is of minimal cost.
I'm not sure what the standard way of filing bugs is for Ubuntu, but
maybe if we have a separate maintainer contact for Ubuntu pkg-perl
packages, then those that e-mail that address, we will know are
inquiring about a Ubuntu package, in case they mail the Maintainer
contact directly and do not note which OS/version they're using.

I understand you're a Ubuntu Developer, so I trust that you know what
is most appropriate from a Ubuntu point of view. Whether we create an
alioth or Launchpad mailing list doesn't matter to me, as long as we
have a reliable mailing list we can use for Ubuntu Perl packages.
I have not spent much time with Ubuntu at all and am unsure what their
standards are for things...
