Is Matti, who also looks after vger, in MAINTAINERS ?

Given your position above, don't you think he should be, so that when
people have a problem with LKML they can email him?

I think you're not understanding me (Alan seems to have made the same
mistake). Please note that I was talking about the _admin_ side not
the actual useful ARM traffic side.

So instead you'd like me to do more work by having to service peoples
requests about how to subscribe and unsubscribe from a mailing list
which I don't run?

I invented a tool for that. It's called "running my own mailing list."

And... have your emails been held for moderation recently?

This one was:
http://lists.arm.linux.org.uk/lurker/message/20090806.142334.73be8efd.en.html

These (subsequent) ones weren't:

I feel we're covering old ground here (see the earlier bits of this thread.)
