Unless I am mistaken, you are not registered with QOS.CH Jira. The email 
below was sent to all Jira users where username=email_address.

The default assigned user for logback issues is user named 
"logback-dev at qos.ch" which happens to be the email address of this list.

Anyway, you can safely ignore my previous email below.
