[MD1]We apologize...
As you know, you've gotten a handful of e-mails from MacDev-1 regarding Mac OS development news. The original list for MacDev-1 was seeded with press and influence makers names drawn from companies all over the community. It was never the intention to send MacDev-1 msgs to any mailing list -- that would be poor netiquette. It took us a bit to figure this one out because only one person was complaining (that we know of). But, in the end, he shed some very useful light on it being the tools-hackers address that was the recipient. That address will be removed later this morning (when I get into the office). You shouldn't receive any more MacDev-1 messages through tools-hackers -- but if you do, let us know (there must be another address).
