So retargeting to 2.4.3.

I agree with the points you make.

Currently targeted at 2.4.2, but will likely break string chill.

Can you suggest some text? I assume we want to direct people to -maintainers only for things that need to remain vaguely confidential, like security issues?

(I'm not getting any direct mail of this kind, so it looks like people really do pick the top address on the list. I'm inclined to make that -dev.)

Fri 30 Aug 2013 01:58:29 AM UTC, original submission:

Help->About Freeciv says nothing about our mailing lists. The only contact addresses given there are of four current Maintainers and bugtracker. Mine is first, so if someone sends email to just one of us, it's likely me. Anyway, I get non-negligible amount of emails that should go to one of the mailing lists - often to -maintainers, but sometimes all of -dev. Depending on my workload and activity there can be long delay between me receiving the email (giving mental note to myself that I should handle it some day when I do freeciv stuff) and me doing anything about it.
Mailing lists should be listed as point of contact in "About Freeciv", though if -dev is included it should be clearly noted to be public mailing list.

Now, excuse me, I have vague memory of seeing such an email subject line scrolling past week or two ago. I'm off to dig my inbox.
