The unknown object is wikibugs-l@ and will go away once that is set up (it is already in this instance). Hence only the preview instance would benefit from a fix, but not this production instance, hence not worth it.

I just noticed a similar message on T74749#794808.

I've been seeing this message occur on _every_ pywikibot task (i.e. it happens so frequently, I am now blind to it)

Probably it's pywikipedia-bugs@lists.wikimedia.org, then? However, " removed a subscriber: Unknown Object (????)." is probably problematic, as that suggests there won't be an e-mail to pywikipedia-bugs anymore...

valhallasw edited projects, added Phabricator; removed Bugzilla-Preview.

yeah, bummer. I think that this is a case of case-sensitivity....

Pywikipedia-bugs@lists.wikimedia.org

was pulled from bugzilla

and

pywikipedia-bugs@lists.wikimedia.org

was created in Phab

https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/mailinglists/

"Technically" different emails based on spec, but man I wish we would have caught this sooner. I'll try to figure out a fixup.

Briefly discussed Pywikipedia-bugs@ vs pywikipedia-bugs@ with Chase; pasted list of affected BZ IDs in https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/P114

So I was writing something to redo this and I decided to try to find an example to make sure I understood the problem and I have gone through a large portion of the affected tickets and cannot find a single instance of this anymore :) I think the issue has been crowd sourced into extinction. Thanks people.
