So what is the final disposition on git-commits-head@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx?
Was it decided not to have it anymore? or was it just forgotten?

If it was decided to not use it anymore. Would it help to protest?
But if it is really gone, It be best to remove the mailing list and
it's reference from:

It has been an important tool in the past. I'm sorry to see it go.
