In my previous message I didn't realize this point.  If it it on a
different host and listhelpers don't have access to that host then it
makes no sense for us to be listed as an administrator.  People would
send help requests to debbugs-submit-owner and we wouldn't be able to
help with it and would just forward those to you.

Whoever is listed as the -owner address should definitely have the
ability to administer things there.

For the moderator I am okay with adding the listhelper in as a
moderator and having the spamassassin robot discard messages
categorized as spam and have it do that for other sites.  But I am
very cautious about allowing this globally.  There is a lot of spam in
the world and I am focusing on the free software piece of it and not
the whole world in total.  It would overwhelm the system.  So in that
spirit is perfectly okay.
