I think of it like the bug reports from the "bug" package. (I'm thinking
bug uses email submission, or maybe I'm thinking of a similar package)
True, in both cases a "program" sends the message. However, in both cases
the email is generated by a person "filling in the blank", either bug
description or package description.
There was a person involved in each individual email, thus to me, it's not
automated. To me, automated would be writing a Perl script to run the
entire Packages file thru a computer auto-translator like babelfish and
then submitting without any human editing... That could be annoying.

The emails should have a full language name instead of abbreviation.
It's hard enough for developers to figure out if the translation is "fair",
without having to guess if "ES" means Eastonian or Espanol.
