The whole point was that some people found this essential to maintaining
the system. This email system was started on the request of maintainers,
who felt it nessecary to maintain thier packages, and felt they could do
something with the spam they got. (You can veto the description.) I get
enough Debian related junk - I'm not talking actual bug reports, but "You have
submitted text to this bug", "you have uploaded a package", the type of
stuff that carries no information value. And yet this is somehow hugely
different and worthy of not annoyance, but outrage.
