Mostly, thanks for that. The mirrors@ address really helps. The only
missing aspect:

I rarely want to reach out to AL users. But I often (by comparison,
which still is very rare) need to get into touch with project admins in
case the upstream rsync server fails, some IP needs to be whitelisted,
or our contact information changes. This simple use case doesn't really
fit into any of the mailing lists you mentioned, but the mirrors@ is a
good approach.
