the message was also sent directly to the package owners. somewhere in
there the list is added in the ownership chain.
java-sig is not maintainer of any package - it merely watches commits
and bugs. The script seems to incorrectly detect package ownership used
to generate the email.
It really is rude when
you do things like commit to a package and get a bounce back because
the commit email goes to a list you can not post to, and I guess
defeats the purpose of making those types of emails go to the list.
likely the java-sig group has the list as its email. Please fix.
Emails about commits and bugs go to a different list - java-sig-commits.
If you email java-sig(a)f.o the message will go to java-devel (you need to
be subscribed to post). If you email $pkg-owner(a)f.o, submit a bug or
commit to a package watched by java-sig then the email goes to
java-sig-commits (no need to be subscribed, no bounces). Unless I am
mistaken I don't see anything to fix here, besides the rel-eng script.
