I thought this was the whole point of seemant's original message - it
is projects or teams that have a mail alias. Some herds happen to have
the same name as a project or team, but it's the team that you email,
not the herd. It doesn't make sense to email a herd, any more than it
makes sense to send email to an ebuild. It does however make sense to
email the maintainer of a herd, in the same way as it makes sense to
email the maintainer of an ebuild.
