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