For the pkg-perl packages, I think Ralf's behaviour is ok. After all,
the messages went to the -maintainer list, which is for automated mails
(PTS, bugs, katie). And I do hope everyone on that list filters his
mails in folders per list :-)
I would actually encourage such semi- or fully automatic messages, as we
have a lesser than usual connection with upstream in the Debian Perl
Group and thus need these reminders.
