Well I already told to you on the list and even didn't know yet that
Robert discussed this now on #debian-devel with you and others.
(I'm just in #grub)

I just started to co-maintain the grub packages with Robert and I'm not
yet a DD.
I don't have really an opinion if the list should be open for everyone
or moderated or subscriber only.

I have just a little complaint about these 2 webpages:


If consensus has been already reached that maintainer lists must not be
subscriber only, then it should be in my point of view not be too
difficult to update at least the Alioth FAQ at the Debian Wiki.
