It was on irc; sorry if my intent was unclear.

In the past, the developers reference has said something to the effect
of "mail debian-qa or debian-devel with possibly mia developers".
But, on IRC Jeroen pointed out that this could lead to googling for
that developer coming up with a to hit of "Is [he] MIA?", and since
people might object to that, Jeroen prefers for MIA pings to go to the
"private" mia@ alias, since it isn't publically indexed (by google).

Of course Cc: the possibly mia developer, too, so they have a chance
to respond (and they should probably respond to mia@, so that Jeroen
knows that they are not totally away).


Clear skies,
