I think that's not a bad idea. I have those sort of messages on all of
the other (non-debian) lists that I'm on. I have them automatically
filtered. On the other hand... that's Yet Another piece of email. :/
If we were to have a monthly email along those lines, it should be
titled something like "List FAQ and List removal (unsubscription)
FWIW, I just went looking, and there is indeed a web form for
unsubscription. (At http://www.debian.org/MailingLists/unsubscribe ).
We already have the how-to-unsubscribe message attached to most
messages. Perhaps we should ask the list maintainers to change that to
point to the URL, instead. If we were to have a monthly mailing list
reminder, it should definitely include the web form.
