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.
