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.
