I know, but it's IMO necessary.

If you want to do stuff in public, do it at freedesktop at freedesktop.org,
but not all information is public (SSH keys, for one), and I'm not
convinced of the merit of having everything out there. It just makes
more sense and is easier to have one admin list, and a general-purpose
list. If I catch admin stuff on freedesktop@, I hand people over to
sitewranglers if necessary, or explain to them why it's not
necessary/they're not going to get access/whatever.
