    I remember seeing a document that recommended using help- info- and
    address@hidden for GNU packages mailing lists. I can't find it
    anymore (neither 'maintain' nor 'standards'), did that changed?

No, it didn't change.  The bug- thing in the Mail node of maintain.texi.
We should add help- there as well.

The other place you've seen it discussed is rms' dubbing message.  I had
him change that to recommend the circumlotion of creating PKG-bugs in
savannah and making bug-PKG an alias, purely because they can make that
list on their own, but they can't make bug-PKG.  It would be great if
people could make bug-PKG in savannah.

7 Dealing With Mail

Once a program is in use, you will get bug reports for it.  Most GNU
programs have their own special lists for sending bug reports.  The
advertised bug-reporting email address should always be
address@hidden', to help show users that the program is a GNU
package, but it is ok to set up that list to forward to another site
for further forwarding.  The package distribution should state the name
of the bug-reporting list in a prominent place, and ask users to help
us by reporting bugs there.
