In this case, it is a Debian developer who published private contact
information of somebody elese without asking first. We have some sort of
collective responsibility here. Even if it is not effective, if there are
volunteers to take their time for this email to be removed, that would at least
be a kind answer.
I clicked the ‘report as spam’ button in the list archives on the web and hope
that it will eventually be removed.
