No. I don't stopped this in result of this.

The old opt-out was broken and I don't see this fact first. 

The problems with the qa group and the maintainers with 'daily new
packages' (like kernel-*) are the reason for the stopping. 

No consence or insights was the reason for this stop or the opt-in. 

I don't think this is 
 - no spam
 - no violating the DMUP
 - don't break some laws in some countries (maybe I can't drive to the
   USA in future?)

I start only the opt-in now, because of
 - the respect of your 'opt-in' boys
 - the promise on #debian-devel
and I love consence and rules.

I like the opt-out system. Maybe we need a GR, maybe we can opt-out
the few 'opt-in' boys and change the default.
