I presume the reason emails weren't there was because of the extra spam

Would somebody please create a tracker about this?

The current behaviour is not acceptable. We can't direct potential
contributors to the Meisters page and leave them there without any contact

Another idea to protect the privacy of the meisters would be to create
'anonymous' email accounts like address@hidden that forward to a
personal mailbox.
If I had my email address clearly exposed in the project page, it
would be only tangentially more prone to spam than it currently is. I
do not oppose to show it, possibly with a minimal obfuscation such as
'at' 'dot' and the like, which spambots can already decypher anyway.
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consult documentation that has been outdated for decades and/or that is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.

Attached is a patch that adds four alias addresses to the Meisters page.
In order to be applied someone should have created the email addresses
and set them up to forward to the real persons.
