Not really; the lists we are talking about _are_ migrated to
alioth-lists.debian.net which will continue to accept mail for
And like Andreas, I see no point in changing the mail addresses in
thousands of packages and various tools and parts of infrastructure.

This link and the whole check would be helpful only for not-migrated
alioth lists which don't work anymore but I guess lintian has no
chance to make this discrimination.
