Are we nearly done?

Subject: NOTIFICATION wouter@debian.org +all

lotsa typing. Heck, it's even less, you usually don't have to type the
word "Subject" itself.

grisu, you're the coder. Whether it's opt-out or opt-in is irrelevant,
since there's not much work to be done. debian-private is opt-out as well,
yet I see nobody complain about this. Pick something and be done with it.

We don't need a *new* flamewar on the subject, and we most certainly don't
need a GR on it. If you, grisu, think that opt-out is better than opt-in,
then assume that all people currently in your database have already chosen
(so they'll have to opt-in, big deal) but make the default opt-out.

Go do something productive.

This is Linux world. On a quiet day, you can hear Windows reboot.
