Off-topic, and apologies.
Would whoever looks after security at (Majordomo and maybe
CVS) please contact me - as someone has tried to (ab)use my personal
e-mail address to register on cvs-checkins at and now 
developers at
Maybe they just want to harvest e-mail addresses, but I'm worried they
might want to purport to be me (or any other previous list subscriber)
and try to get a dodgy patch accepted.
Brief summary: cvs-checkins attempt  at Sat, 25 Apr 2009 04:09:16 -0700
(PDT) and developers attempt at Tue,  5 May 2009 22:48:02 -0700 (PDT).
