    Honestly, can a list be considered a contact point at all if you can't
    post to it? If they are so afraid of outside posters, they can setup a
    specific list for bug reporting only thats open or something. IMHO
    allowing closed lists to be listed in the MAINTAINERS file is
    to support the stupidity.

    Cheers,
