[openstack-dev] [tc] [ptl] PTL E-mail addresses on rendered team pages


Governance tooling change https://review.openstack.org/575554 is
currently up for review to start displaying current PTL E-mail
addresses on the team specific pages linked from the projects index
https://governance.openstack.org/tc/reference/projects/ page.

Since https://review.openstack.org/234420 merged a few years ago
we've been tracking PTL E-mail addresses in the structured data from
which we generate those pages, but the Sphinx extension we're using
was never amended to include them. Having somewhere consistent to
point members of the community who need to reach out to the PTL of a
team in private (and may not have easy access or comfort to do so via
IRC privmsg) would be useful. Right now we're stuck telling people
to dig around in a YAML file for them, which is not an especially
friendly answer.

A knee-jerk reaction any time E-mail addresses get displayed
somewhere new is that it's going to increase the amount of spam
those addresses receive. Keep in mind that we've been publishing all
of them on a Web page for years now, just one which is only
convenient for spammers and not one which is convenient for people
who might have a legitimate need to contact our PTLs.
