I've seen several posts regarding unsubscribing lately and am getting
the impression that the listmaster address isn't being closely
monitored.  If so, this isn't good, and has lead to some rather
impressive flameouts in the past.

In general, the contact information portion of the Debian website could
be substantially improved.  Anyone know how to find an officers list
from the front page without a priori knowledge?

Cheers.
