Thank you, a lowered severity is of course better.

But to be honest, it doesn't change a lot if I'm seeing

"W: $package source: mailing-list-obsolete-in-debian-infrastructure Debian Perl Group <pkg-perl-maintainers@lists.alioth.debian.org>"


"I: $package source: mailing-list-obsolete-in-debian-infrastructure Debian Perl Group <pkg-perl-maintainers@lists.alioth.debian.org>"

each single time I build a perl package (ok, the colour is nicer :)).

In my personal opinion, this lintian warning/info is not actionable,
also the referred to wiki page at
https://wiki.debian.org/Alioth/MailingListContinuation doesn't say
anything about not using @lists.alioth.debian.org or what to replace
it with, and unless the maintainers of the replacement system tell us
otherwise, I assume this will all keep working fine.

So personally, I'd rather see this lintian tag dropped completely.
