We always had bug-wget at gnu.org for everything (user + dev) incl. Wget2
So we made up a new ML wget-dev at gnu.org for developers which includes
the Gitlab notifications. And as you expect, some people sending
questions directly into the new ML.

So what i do is just following the new ML. If someone comes with an
issue directly on the ML, I open an issue at Gitlab. If it is just a
question, it will be answered on the ML directly.
That is no extra work so far for me.

Let the user choose how they contact GnuTLS - some people don't want to
make up a Gitlab account or even don't want to get in contact with the
Gitlab web site. And a ML is much better for this than private mails.
