Since there were no complaints (and some happy users) and we didn't
real issues (there was an issue when using the Errors-To header, which
might break your dkim signature, but the only user of Errors-To has
dropped it) the jit, libstdc++, fortran and gcc-rust lists now also
have the above mailman settings.

The admin email address for fortran was updated to Toon's new address
and the one for libstdc++ was changed from bkoz to jwakely.

If there are any issues with the list settings please discuss on the
overseers@sourceware.org mailinglist.

Cheers,

Mark
