Yeah. Depending on the purpose of the list, I would probably _not_ put
the SFC. They help manage the legal and financial aspects of the git
project, but they have nothing at all to do with the code itself. I
would hate for them to get a phone call about support. :)

Probably "The Git Community" or "git@vger.kernel.org" is the best thing
to fill in if you need to write something in a form. If there ends up
being some specific reason for a vendor to be contacted, folks on the
list will be able to point an inquiry in the right direction (which
might even end up being the SFC).

To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in
the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org
