Remove ~ubuntu-lists, use its email for ~ubuntugis

Asked by Bas Couwenberg on 2019-12-17

The ~ubuntu-lists user is no longer used, it "was created on 2009-05-10 when the gdal_1.6.0-5~ppa1 package was uploaded to intrepid/RELEASE. "

The ~ubuntugis email preferences cannot be changed to its mailing list (<email address hidden>) because the email address is associated with the ~ubuntu-lists user.

OK, I've just talked to a colleague about how to arrange this, because it's a bit weird. What we'll need to do is as follows:

 * You should follow "Is this a team you run?" on https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-lists, and then use the token emailed to <email address hidden> to convert it into a team. (If it's a moderated mailing list that you moderate, feel free to fish the token out of the moderation interface rather than letting it reach the mailing list archives.)
 * Once it's been converted to a team, let us know and we can merge it into ~ubuntugis.

Thanks for the feedback. With the help of the osgeo.org listmasters we managed to convert ~ubuntu-lists to a team.

Please merge it into ~ubuntugis so that <email address hidden> can be used as contact address.

Colin Watson (cjwatson) said : #7

Should be done. See if you can set the contact address now?

Many thanks for your help, after the merged teams we were able to set the email preferences for ~ubuntugis to its mailinglist.
