Hello Saša,

I have noted this in a previous message to you from almost a month ago,
but I repeat. This mailing list is defunct and I will eventually delete
it: <https://protesilaos.com/codelog/2024-01-27-sourcehut-no-more/>.
Development continues on GitHub with GitLab as a mirror. Please use
those.
