[2/2] MBF: Defunct alioth addresses in the Uploaders: field (normal)

Some now defunct alioth addresses are used in the Uploaders: field.
This is not explicitly forbidden by policy but certainly something that
should be addressed.

To create awareness about that issue, also to provide suggestions on
how to resolve this I intend to do a MBF using the following message:

To: submit@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Subject: [% package %]: Invalid address [% alioth_list %] in Uploaders: field

Package: src:[% package %]
Version: [% version %]
Severity: normal
User: admin@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Usertag: alioth-lists-uploaders

Dear maintainer of the [% package %] package,

as you've probably heard, Debian's alioth services are shutting down.
This affects your package [% package %] since the list address
[% alioth_list %] used in the Uploaders: field was not transferred to
the alioth-lists service that provides a continuation for the lists in
the @lists.alioth.debian.org domain.

Addresses that were not migrated have been disabled a few days ago.
Therefore your package now has an invalid address in the Uploaders:
list. Please fix this since when convient.

Your options:

* Upload another version with that address removed or replaced,


* Migrate the list the new system. This is still possible,
  please appoint a Debian developer as a list owner first, then
  contact the alioth lists migration team <admin@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>
  and provide all the necessary information.

  More information about the new service can be found here:

The first option is probably suitable only if the address was used just
in a small number of packages since this requires an upload for each of
them. To our knowledge, the usage count of [% alioth_list %] is [% count %].

The second option is available for a limited time only, by end of
May 2018 the most. So if you're interested in going this way, start the
process as soon as possible.
