Debian has no generalised mechanism for contacting users of packages

Hi all,

I was thinking about how Debian does not have mechanisms for contacting
users of particular packages for help with testing particular changes,
for example invasive security fixes or new upstream releases.

Does anyone have some suggestions for how to do this?

Some options I can think of:

A tag on the package tracker people could subscribe to.

Filing bugs tagged help and having how-can-i-help show that to users.

A new system for this or an extension to the package tracker for users
to register themselves to particular packages and particular kinds of
mails (testing on arch foo, security fix testing, etc).
