I'm actually subscribed to the list as bd-sourceforge@.... I tend
to subscribe to things with unique email addresses so that if the list
or whatever winds up not letting me unsubscribe (it's happened before)
it's easy to drop it. (I think my Sourceforge user is tied to that
address too, but I'm not sure.)
This is moot for this list now, though, so I'm happy to resubscribe with
my real address. Something similar might be an issue for others, though.
(Or it's possible theres a way for list users to state what other
addresses are aliases for themselves in whatever SF uses for list
management. That would be ideal, though, so I assume it's not the case.
