I am fine with pointing the account back to the list. However, I would
like to make sure only closed group of people can change password of
the Bugzilla account. Having the account pointing to a public mailing
list allows anyone to change the password. Dropping all the emails
coming from this Bugzilla account will do the job, but there will be
no possibility then to change the password in case it gets invalid
(which is what has happened the last time).
What I am trying to achieve is a service account shared and controlled
by a closed group of people.
If there is any better solution, I am open to accept it.

We could do this, but I am not sure what advantage it might bring us.
Now that the password is reset, why not point it back to the list?
is the list of use? If we don't care about any emails to that account
we could just drop them?
