Whose idea was it to enter moderated mailing lists as package owners
in pkgdb?

When sending mail to the package-owner Fedora aliases, for some packages
the mail is rejected by a mailing-list, for other packages it is aded to a
list's queue. Hopefully there's one human being receiving and reading the
incoming mail, or else the purpose of the package-owner aliases is defeated.
