I took a list at the content of this list. In theory it should be
used for release management but since this burdon basically lays on
the release manager, he doesn't need this list for it.
Also, release status reports are sent to debian-devel-announce, which
is a more proper place, I guess. Discussions could then happen to
The boot-floppies folks also cross-posted some status mails to this
list, but may probably better use the debian-devel-announce for status
mails as well, and direct discussions to debian-devel.
So yes, I agree, that this list isn't used properly and hence should
be removed. Today it's mostly a spam collector which we don't need.

maybe the release manager and/or the boot-floppies/debian-installer
people would like to raise their concern as well.
