 - please try to keep mails on the list as small as possible in order
   to ideally make it easy for every list member to follow their content
 - please report bugs to bugzilla
 - if this is exceptionally not possible, send us email and we'll put it in
   bugzilla for you
 - if people really need to send larger content -> negotiate this fact on the
   list beforehand and rather send it by private email
