That's an interesting corner case, thanks for mentioning it.
I'm not sure how we can make it easier for small maintenance team to
have a mailing list. Maybe starting archiving @packages.d.o addresses
could be a first step?
Good question, I'm not aware of a master plan for our development
collaboration infrastructure. One issue I see with this proposition is
the loss of private contact channels that work for all packages (and
should remain available for the vast majority of them).
For what it's worth, I don't see this problem as a "corner case", I
think there must be a lot of exchanges that happen this way currently.
