That was mentioned separately. The page I linked above said

and you're referring to the first of the two items there.

I know at least for debian-med, debian-science, and debian-python, they
also have mailing lists on alioth, which they use in the maintainer
fields. The lists.debian.org address is only used for general discussion.

All this you're talking about refers to commits mailing lists, which I
agree is straightforward.

I found a lead on my question on the same page I linked previously [1]:

and, above, it says [2]:

Although it looks like this has happened already (at least, that bug is
fixed in stretch-backports). Maybe we can already start using

Maintainer: Debian HPC Team <packagename@packages.debian.org>
