Well, we know of no case of somebody uploading a trojan horse to Incoming,
but currently pgp signatures are required for all uploads. I don't think
this is so different. We have to be secure before the harm is
made for the first time, not after.
In your particular case (which is an exception), I assume a PGP-signed
mail to the listmaster asking to remove you from the list could have
been also a solution. If needed, I would offer myself for this type of
assistance if the current listmasters think this is outside the scope of
a listmaster, but I don't think it will happen so often for more people to
become necessary in the listmaster role.
are not "vital" for the project, but the remaining ones? Consider that
anybody may unsubscribe *anybody* from debian-devel while we sleep, one
day before the release, for example.
Why should we allow that?
