Why do you get it for every package? Are you subscribed to debian-gcc
and debian-glibc (which naturally get the messgaes for those packages)?

Adam Heath's message was undesired mail that I didn't ask to recieve,
and that I could do nothing about. Does that make it spam? What about
all the messages "you have sent information to the BTS blah blah blah"?
Is that spam? It's certainly undesired on my part.
