Removing you from the list as punishment doesn't help anyone.  :-)  We
welcome the opportunity to include Arch Linux in our coordinated
releases, we just need to ensure that incidents like this do not
happen in the future.  Since it seems that this was a legitimate
mistake based on misunderstanding of the process, and not an
intentional disclosure, I think we can consider this particular issue
closed.  (We will still have to figure out what to do about 2.7.2, of
course.)  If you ever again have any confusion or are unclear about
how to proceed with instructions received on packagers@, please
request assistance or further information before taking action.
