Just so everybody knows, has (mid-term) continuation for this list been

My preference, the same as on salsa, so ci-team.

In my opinion, this should only be done after the tracker actually does
something with e-mails send to that address instead of putting them in

Not urgent after the AliothWriter is/was merged, but sure.

No idea/opinion. What is this exactly?

I would say that if you are interested in having this, go ahead. As long
as one can be subscribed to the list without getting these messages, I
am fine.
