The ASF has a policy of *not* removing mails in the majority of cases.
It simply is not possible to do so since our mailing lists are
archived all over the place. See

The point is that you are not a contact point for the AOO project,
this list is. If you, as a single individual, choose to act on
requests like these and others that you frequently claim are coming
your way you will quickly run out of time or you will fail to address
the requests. Please share everything here (or on the private lists if
absolutely necessary).

Personally I would rather see you spending time addressing the issue
with SPI funds since you are the named individual dealing with the SPI
(or alternatively indicating that you do not intend to do so, thereby
making way for someone else to do it).
