I am not corresponding with a free software project, I am
corresponding with a mirror team. And it's not unusual. If you lost
your password and mailed debian-admin about it, you wouldn't want it
public, right? Good, because it won't be.

Feel free to make a change and announce it. I never saw an
announcement that on July 1, the mirror submission form would
automatically file bugs. I don't oppose to this, but I certainly
oppose to it "just happening".

Please do not send copies of list mail to me; I read the list!
