No objections from my side if you grant me admin rights.  As a surplus
we don't have to wait for lp ppl to merge my accounts; there are some
restrictions that inhibit merging e.g. creating a PPA, after all I want
to be known on lp as ~bsb and not as ~bsb-psycho :-P

Thanks for this, did you write down any issues that should be
addressed when revamping pipermail? One thing that comes to mind
is how to deal with mime types and attachments.  I'd also like to
see signatures validated. (On an aside, I hate these footers that
make my messages not fully signed)

I know that's because I mentioned it, I didn't recall the variable
name though.  In the first place I don't want to see 2 copies
arriving, no MUA involved here.

  Siggy (birds are greeting the day, time to go to bed :)
Please don't Cc: me when replying, I might not see either copy.
