There were already some discussions in the past (IMO in debian-devel and
debian-mentors) about this list usage (IIRC there were also some
discussions, how to workaround or prevent the problems of open and
closed maintainer list addresses - maybe someone already found some nice
solution?). We used an moderated list for e.g. pkg-xmule. It works, as
long as one of the list moderators is available to react on held mails.
