Not sure why, but your email program seems to wrap URLs to route them
through Google. Better use plain URLs if possible.
Also, Debian bugreports can use this shorter form:

Seems you requested membership of our salsa team (now granted), but not
Sorry, I realize now how that was likely not obvious: Salsa is a gitlab
hosting, and the mailinglist is independent of that.
Initially when you wrote you wanted to help I assumed you wanted to help
with packaging - that's the reason I immediately talked about Salsa.
Our conversation since then indicates that perhaps your help might
instead be in bug traging and coordination between Debian and Sugarlaps,

You enter an environment alien to you and immediately call it out as
"bizarre" and (now _after_ my warning) "antiquated".
I don't take offense by that but others might. More likely though, you
just look like a fool when making such quick assumptions. Your choice.
