Hi David,

I realize now that many emails (about 20% in our case) that are listed as
package maintainers, are public mailing lists. That's unfortunate, but
hopefully most reported bugs will not be security critical. I'll make sure
to exclude mailing lists next time.

This is concerning. Uploaders with special characters in their name did not
receive the mail yet, but this shouldn't have happened in your package. Can
you let me know which uploader did not receive the package?

I agree that this does not seem like an issue. There is a "DO NOT REPORT"
option if maintainers feel like the report should not be submitted for any
reason. It would be nice to see the crash fixed though :)
