That's the one I'm referring to as "the log_accum.pl derivative", as I
believe that the script's original name is log_accum.pl.

Let me quote the code :)

sub mail_notification {
    if ($username) {
        $MAILFROM = "$username\@$ORGANIZATION";
    open(MAIL, "| $MAILER -t");
    print MAIL <<EOF ;
To: @mailto

This is what I want removed -- it creates mails with "From: joy@debian.org",
and I don't like this because it gets me spam. It is not required to use the
@d.o address for all development mail, so the script shouldn't assume that
everyone wants that.

The replies, the discussion about commits, it should go to the mailing list,
right? The script can set MAILFROM to debian-boot@lists.debian.org and it
will work fine.

     2. That which causes joy or happiness.
