Wow, I'm really sorry for this. Short story is that I cleaned the *huge*
moderation queue for the list.

Long story is that Steve Kowalik was still listed as the only list admin
for pkg-alsa-devel, even though he stopped working on ALSA a long time
ago. A few weeks ago he contacted me to inform me he had replaced
himself with me as the admin, and gave me the admin password.

Today, I checked my debian-alsa mailbox, and saw all the bounces and
held message notifications, which reminded me I now have a new task. :)

I went into the moderation queue and people, you can't imagine the
amount of poo I found in there. I could have discarded everything and
start from 0, but completeness is good, so I decided to rescue every
valid email from there.

Just after finishing reviewing, I was phoned, that helped me forget I
needed to warn the list and then went away until now.

So, sorry. These mails were "sent" by me; it will hopefully never happen
