Why "receive"? I thought popularity-contest only tried to send mail to
apenwarr-survey (**at**) debian (**dot**) org (at least with the version
in woody). Am I mistaken?
In that case, you only receive mails if the above address has been
unreachable for some time. So, in case you cannot receive mail, well,
you might miss a popcon submission if you happen to do it while the
aforementioned address is unreachable. Doesn't look scary to me.
