Description Slava Zanko 2011-09-28 20:05:17 UTC

I'm Slava Zanko, teamlead of Midhight Commander development team
( I want to ask you a favor...

Some time ago Miguel de Ikaza (author of mc and owner of mc@ and
mc-devel@ mail lists) lost password for these mailists. At present
time specified e-mail(miguel{at} doesn't exists, so password
repair is impossible. (,

Now Miguel have another email:{at}, but he isn't
involved in the development of Midnight Commander.

Can you (or someone else) change admin e-mail of these mailists to my
email and provide way to change password?

If you have any doubts or distrust, you may directly ask Miguel
({at} or miguel{at}

sysadmin group. You can reach them on

I can reset the password for you OR we could have the Moderation Team handle the list queue moderation. If you'd prefer the latter I can set that up and you don't need to worry about it. Otherwise, let me know and I'll reset the password.
Comment 2 Olav Vitters 2011-09-28 20:12:28 UTC
I've send you some new passwords via private email.
Comment 3 Slava Zanko 2011-09-28 20:26:19 UTC
Big thanks for new passwords, but I consulted with some members of the development team and we decided that the Moderation Team handle is a better choice.

Thanks again for taking the time :)

Cool. I'll make sure it gets handled.
