Bug#355725: mention that maintainers should avoid certain e-mail addresses (e.g. mail@)
I just had an NM who was using firstname.lastname@example.org as his email address.
He said he had rumours that such generic mail addresses may cause
problems. I talked to Pasc (listmaster) and he said it's true and
that maintainers of packages should not use such e-mail addresses.
Unfortunately it's currently impossible to subscribe with a username
that matches procmail's check for mail coming from a daemon. This
means that a username may not have "mail", "admin", "root", "master"
or similar strings in it (see procmailrc(5) for "FROM_DAEMON").
Can you please mention this in the developers-reference so maintainers
are aware of this.
