I assume the intended policy is that lists.debian.org is suitable for
discussion lists (like the GNOME Team's debian-gtk-gnome@lists and
the Games Team's debian-devel-games@lists), but not for the maintainer
address of record that gets all the bugs and other bulk mail (like the
GNOME Team's current pkg-gnome-maintainers@lists.alioth and the Games
Team's pkg-games-devel@lists.alioth)?

A few packages and pseudo-packages already have lists.d.o mailing lists
as their Maintainer, for instance debian-boot and debian-kernel. I know
some GNOME team developers have suggested having debian-gtk-gnome as our
canonical maintainer address: Alexander, presumably your response means
that this would be considered inappropriate, and the GNOME team should
keep debian-gtk-gnome as a discussion list only?
