Re: Bad Maintainer Addresses

From: "Brian C. White" <bcwhite@verisim.com>


I investigated your bounced-maintainer-address list using the list server
database. Most of these maintainers still exist but must upgrade their
packages to include a correct address or they have a transient mail problem.

> dwarf@polaris.com

Correct address is dwarf@polaris.net .

> edwards@cambridgnet.sk.ca

The address seems to be valid.
Their MX host runs Debian.
EXPN edwards
250 Patrick J. Edwards <"|exec /usr/lib/mailagent/filter >> /home/edwards/.bak 2>&1"@sparkle.cambridgenet.sk.ca>

> g.russell@dcs.napier.ac.uk

I think the correct address is gor@dcs.napier.ac.uk .

> ian@chiark.chu.cam.ac.uk


> jeh22@cornell.edu

I don't know, but you might ask djw18@cornell.edu and hn16@cornell.edu
for this person's wherabouts.

> joostje#debian.org

Correct to joostje@debian.org

> moth@firefly.com

I think Raul Miller is not currently a Debian maintainer.

> nils@nus.pan-net.de

Correct to nils@nus.mcis.de .

> oehansen@halmstad.mail.telia.com

He resigned as a maintainer and put his packages up for grabs.

> ossk@sol.astro.uni.jena.de

Try ossk@debian.org

> srivasta@debian.com

Of course srivasta@debian.org .
