Well normally when such a message gets on the list, a listmaster goes out
and makes sure that they are unsubscribed from every list they are
subscribed too, so it doesn't happen. Unfortunately, that listmaster is
Joey, who is currently offline until February 16th. ;-)
In his defence, he wasn't actually replying to a list message with a
vacation message, this looks like it was a spam/virus that had a faked From
field of firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, it didn't actually go out on
debian-devel-announce. As that message wasn't signed by a key in the
keyring, it was diverted to debian-devel.
