As I'm not a developer, I intend to unsubscribe soon. If you have any
question do not hesitate to contact me directly.

NOTE: It would be kind if reporting bugs would not require
  subscription to yet another e-mail list (and I will probably
  unsubscribe shortly again). Also subscription is on a http page
  only (https is broken), thus rendering the password visible
  (which seems strange for projects like rpm). 
  Also sending passwords in plain text is not a good idea in 2020.
