I think if we can manage long-running "project aliases" like
address@hidden, that would be preferable.  We have
responsibilities shifting not infrequently, and people just _love_ to
consult documentation that has been outdated for decades and/or that is
corresponding to the software version they have installed.

Alternatively, point people directly to the mailing lists.
