If you mail mirrors@debian, your mail is readable by DDs, not public.
That seems true for at least 16 role@debian addresses. Does
/intro/organization need updating to mention this, or should
people expect that email to job@org could go to anyone @org?

I don't think fixing some bugs is worth a -devel-announce. People
on -www and mirrors@debian were told early June. It's also on the
bugs and CVS log. Equally, maybe the reformers should have let
people know? No problem, but I asked when I learnt of it.

I assume you can't tell me how it's being reformed.
