Welcome to the Hotel California. :-)

The web interface is usually less frustrating than email,


A common problem is you are subscribed from a different address
than you think you are.  There is a query that isn't obvious.

	From: rick@def.debian.net
	To: Majordomo@lists.debian.org
	Subject: foo

	which rick@def.debian.net

will return the lists I'm subscribed to.  You can try other
likely addresses with which.  I think one of From: or Reply-To:
has to be the same as the which address.


To UNSUBSCRIBE, email to debian-project-request@lists.debian.org
with a subject of "unsubscribe". Trouble? Contact listmaster@lists.debian.org
