Yes, please do so - Put it on your schedule.
This meant to be a serious proposal and is not a knee-jerk reaction.
You've decided to kill maintainers@, now you should be consequent and
kill these lists, too.
 IMO, this FESCO decision is a fault and mistake, we all will regret.
It molests maintainers with long term development babbling and molests
"application developers" with "bureaucracy of Fedora package
maintenance" - It's not helpful to both parties.
