Don't blame Magnus - it was me. Per our IM conversation I've changed
the address.

No, that doesn't. We have 2 things setup on the repo:

Policy enforcement: This ensures that you always commit using the
correct email address
Commit messages: This sens the commit message to the list. The script
is currently using the Author address as the sender, which I'm going
to look at fixing to use the Committer address.

The way it was setup, was that your policy approved address wasn't
subscribed to the mailing list.
