	Please try to use 'debian-devel-request@lists.debian.org'
	the next time when issuing (un)subscribe requests.

You have not been removed, I couldn't find your name on the list.

If this wasn't your intention or you are having problems getting yourself
unsubscribed, reply to this mail now (quoting it entirely (for diagnostic
purposes), and of course adding any comments you see fit).

Transcript of unsubscription request follows:
