Getting CC on -release (was Re: Removing orphaned packages from testing)

This will be done on a best-effort basis. We tend to always CC people on
-release because it's a role address list, where people who may not be
subscribed send requests (unblock requests during freezes, coordination
for library uploads eg. now), and we should make sure they get a copy of
the answer, exactly the same way they get a copy if the mail to a
private alias, or to the BTS.
If you set a M-F-T header, it'll be honoured by at least some of us.
In this case in particular, another possible way to have done it would
be avoiding cross-posting altogether, send the initial message to the
appropriate list (-qa), Bcc'ing -release on it.
Hope this makes sense to you,
