It depends.

If it's a bugfix, address@hidden is best.  If the patch is aimed at
end users only, address@hidden seems most appropriate (although
maybe we should omit that in order not to make things too
complicated).  If the patch is not a bug fix, but aimed at being
included in Guile or some Guile module, then address@hidden is
most appropriate.

Developers use lsh.  Anonymous users use :pserver:.  (It would be a
good idea to test that this works as you have documented it.)

We should in fact point to lsh.  There should be a web page about it

Yes, please.

Check it.  If it's up-to-date (last night's date), you can keep it,
otherwise drop it.

Thanks a lot!
