Bug#461793: Please drop BTS mails delivered to debian-dpkg@l.d.o

Package: lists.debian.org

Hello dear listmasters,

the dpkg team would like to change the Maintainer field of the dpkg
package to point to debian-dpkg@lists.debian.org. This will result
in all the BTS mails being delivered to the list. We would like you
to drop those mails in /dev/null. (We will do the change once you
have told us that the filter is in place)

Rationale is that we want the public mailing list as official point of
contact. However, all contributors already use either debian-dpkg-bugs or
the PTS to receive bugs. Furthermore we want to keep the list low-volume
and uncluterred (otherwise it would for example reduce the value of the
list archives).
