Hi Dagobert,
I've just created a new mailing list: address@hidden
Please use that for your new cibiuld tool, assuming it will not spam
the list too much, of course.

This new list is mainly to have a forum in which to discuss
development without incurring the administrative cost of an
auto-created debbugs ticket per thread. Of course, if you have a bug,
or a patch for which issue tracking is a good idea, please continue to
use the bug-diffutils mailing list.

Note that I'll post announcements to the new list from now on, not to
the bug-diffutils list.
