Shall we, the list admins, inform the corresponding subscribers resp. 
the list(s)?

If yes, then it would be great if there was a web page stating the 
current status and possibly also the past status, so that we can point 
the affected subscribers to this page. This web page might also put some 
public pressure on free.fr. Otherwise, I'll refer to your message 
(https://marc.info/?l=kde-community&m=144329957703751).
