I consider this a really ugly hack:

if Cnf.get("Dinstall::TrackingServer") and changes["architecture"].has_key("source"):
      Subst["__ANNOUNCE_LIST_ADDRESS__"] = Subst["__ANNOUNCE_LIST_ADDRESS__"] + "\nBcc: %s@%s" % (changes["source"], Cnf["Dinstall::TrackingServer"]);

I thought __ANNOUNCE_LIST_ADDRESS__ would expand only to the
address of the configured mailing list, but it also expands to include
the tracking server too.

I am guessing that the maintainer got my message via the tracking
server (I hope this didn't mess anything up...).

So add to my previous list: remove the Dinstall::TrackingServer config
setting from katie.conf!

I think that will fix the problem.
