Subscribe an external mailing list to all bugmail?

Asked by Thorsten Glaser


I’m running a mailing list for mksh upstream and would like it to receive all bugmail, instead of just the MirOS Developers team, but not set it up as team to give it any control. Optimally, only bugmail, no administrativa, would be sent to it.

However, I could not find information how to do precisely that. Is this possible with Launchpad?

Launchpad does not officially support this case.

Launchpad sends bug mail to the preferred email address of users.. Teams can also have a contact address. People have set a user or team address to a mailing list in the past, but we do not advise anyone doing this. Bugs can contain personal or security information that must not be disclosed to everyone. For example, when users report Launchpad has leaked an email address, we commonly find the real source was a bug subscriber using a mailing list, the emails were placed in a public archive.

I am note sure what you mean by only bug mail. I image you want to to "Subscribe to bug email" at and maybe

Can you help with this problem?
