forwarded message from email@example.com
1. Here is a bug report against sysutils, which bounced for some
2. The mailing list system seemed to think it was an unsubscription
request. I wish I knew why.
3. It claimed to have unsubscribed firstname.lastname@example.org, which is
very interesting as that address has never been subscribed to
debian-devel (I get it via my mail->news gateway,
4. There are a couple more of these, they follow shortly.
Would the appropriate people please investigate.

Please try to use 'firstname.lastname@example.org'
the next time when issuing (un)subscribe requests.
You have been removed from 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).
