if we open up the LibreOffice extension and template site/repository for users and 
let them create a new account in person (with the need of an email-address to 
activate the account), we need a mailinglist or another solution, to catch the mails 
from the webmaster account. If there is an issue with the mailaddress of the new user 
the webmaster get an email. This makes it posible to get the information about faked 
accounts and we can delete them (or deactivate the selfregistration if we were 
overwhelmed with such accounts).

In my opinion a mailinglist is the best solution for this because a group of admins 
will get the information and not only one person had to solve the problem.

I am currently thinking about what the best solution is. I do not want
to end up with dozens of mail aliases and mailing lists for various
sites, like templates, extensions, updates etc. - this doesn't scale
very well. On the other hand, sending everything to the admins doesn't
make much sense either.

So, I see the following options:

(1) Not creating a real mailing list, but rather only a forwarder to a
group of people, so archiving is not done on our server.

(2) Creating one mailing list for all webmaster services for various sites.

(3) Enter the webmaster@ alias and see how much comes in. We then can
always forward messages accordingly.

Any thoughts on these ideas?
