You are aware that the maintainer address is published everywhere [1] so
the new address is going to get harvested again?


[1] starting when you emailed this message as all posts are published on
public web-based mail archive

I now have email filter that flags spam and returns postmaster message that email account is un-known.

So can a committer make this change or do I have to send a PR with a diff of the Makefile?
