    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."

    These (subsequent) ones weren't:

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