Well, if he really cares about that, he could raise the point inside
each of the team he participates in. Or just procmail the mail to
/dev/null (the mail provides the standardized X-Debian header to make
that easy). Or follow up on Stefano's offer to organize a poll.
Given that, so far, the positive feedback was higher than the negative
feedback, I'm not going to change the process without a clear sign that
a majority of people do not want those mails.
