Sorry about that - they're meant to be helpful, rather than a source
of annoyance.

I've added the debian-med-packaging alioth list maintainer address
(as used by ctdconverter) to the opt-out list, which means that no new
merge proposals will be created. Please follow up privately if you'd
like me to add more addresses.

The FAQ that Otto quoted has details on how to opt out (and other
questions) and is linked from merge proposals, but the link is
admittedly a somewhat hidden at the moment (under the anchor
text "The Debian Janitor") - I'll change it to be called out more
