This might work - Jim recently created coreutils-patches@ as an alias to
bug-coreutils@; but changing the former to be list-only while the latter
continues to route through address@hidden would have the desired end
result of an alias that sends mail to the same list but without spawning
a bug.

If I understand correctly, the coreutils@ list was created primarily for
discussion of development concepts, but not necessarily for patches.
