People could and I'm not sure if they'd be interested, and I don't wanna 
give any ideas, but I already have now.

Or you did ;-).

And only you can know, my email is yet not on any public git list. I do 
know..... some times are also getting targetted by e.g. Indian web 
hosting providers.

When this happens it is targetted spam. It seems targetted or 
targettable spam lists are more valuable; e.g. some spam only ever 
arrives on a certain kind of address that have been used for certain 
services (that then sold them or got hacked (probably the former 
mostly)). So if anyone did target a git log, they would do so for 
specific reasons.

However a blatantly available web page.... again I don't know if such 
"general" email addresses are still worth anything today.

Okay I will see if I can, but I have a million projects that are *also* 
not getting a foot on the ground ;-) (because it is broken) so don't 
count on it happening within the space of whatever ;-).

Everything is easy once you have made the investment. Making 
investments, however, is what you need to be picky in, usually.
