As I answered back then, I've initially subscribed this list to the Ubuntu 
bug mail for the mc package at Launchpad, as I was doing the packaging and 
it was hugely convenient to have all Debian-related bug mail coming to the 
same mailing list.

I still think that this adds a lot of value as, interestingly enough, the 
reports by Ubuntu users (also concerning the packaging, rather than 
genuine upstream bugs) were different from the ones by Debian users.

Anyways, since I'm not doing Debian packaging anymore (or, at least, very 
little of it), I have eventually unsubscribed this list from the Ubuntu 
bug mail on Dmitry's request, as I can't really force the idea of caring 
about Debian downstream distributions down his throat.

I'm not sure what else I can add to that, if a few more messages slipped 
through, I can't really tell why. I have double checked the email settings 
on Launchpad once again and removed one remaining instance where the list 
email was still present, but in theory it shouldn't matter, as this 
address is not supposed to be used for bug mail anyways.

Sincerely yours,
