I just got a mailinglist reminder, which is a very kind service.
However, at the bottom of the message I found this:

> ....
> If you have questions, problems, comments, etc, send them to
> mailman-owner at  Thanks!
> Passwords for dstibbe at
> List                                     Password // URL
> ----                                     --------
> lambda-dev at              ******

( Password was *-ed by me.)

Why on earth is de mailinglist sending me my password in PLAINTEXT in
Why does it even know what my plaintext password is?

When is openjdk planning to fix this amateuristic setup?

Kind regards,
