Here is the page that under a minute of googling helped me find:


To unsubscribe, enter your e-mail and click the 'unsubscribe' button.
That didn't work? Maybe try taking the advice here:


Short of spamming the entire mailing list (to which, making a
conservative estimate, at least a few hundred people subscribe), you
might want to try mailing the hostmaster if you can't figure out how
to either unsub or make a gmail filter rule.

"someone take my email off the list or I will report it as harassment."
I know this is probably frustrating for you, but lay off the legal
threats. For one thing, if you actually *did* follow through that
almost certainly wouldn't go anywhere, but more to the point
threatening people makes them less inclined to want to help you.

"Unsubscribe me or I will spam your list"
For a number of reasons, that would not be a good idea. One being that
it's almost certainly a violation of Google's ToS, and this would be a
very silly thing to get banned over.

And no, I am in no way affiliated with the Debian project.
