Please remove the association of <email address hidden> with ~ubuntu-core-dev

Asked by James Westby


~ubuntu-core-dev used to have it's contact address set to <email address hidden>

We wanted to shuffle things round a bit, and so it is now set to <email address hidden>

However, there is a trace in the DB that means we can't do what we want and set ~ubuntu-dev's contact
address to be <email address hidden>.

Therefore could you please remove this trace from the DB so that we can use the address elsewhere
as intended.

What does "trace in the DB" mean? What exactly are you seeing?

"<email address hidden> is already registered in Launchpad and is associated with Ubuntu Core Development Team."

I believe it's a well-known Launchpad bug (though I don't have a reference - Curtis told me this last week) that changing a team's contact address doesn't properly disassociate that address from the team, and DB surgery is required to finish the job.

This is more important now as the latest rollout had changes that meant all
Ubuntu developers will receive more mail due to the team structure, and we
can't change that until this is done.

The problem that caused this issue will be fixes with the rollout of 10.05. Admins can run this script *before* the rollout to delete all the unused team email address:
