Surely the correct answer to this problem is to get the Cheese Shop 
fixed, not to migrate away from it? To whom (besides this list) have you 
communicated the problem, and with what results?

Remember that python.org is run by volunteers, but they are mostly 
highly capable volunteers. This is probably just a change situation that 
wasn't anticipated in the design (we all make mistakes).

A simple change of email address could probably be achieved by tweaking 
the data for one or two individuals, and an automated solution should 
clearly be added as volumes build up.

For now, how about a link that causes someone to receive email? I'd be 
surprised if this couldn't be used to handle low-volume changes with 
adequate security.

regards
  Steve
