There are plans to merge @packages.d.o and @packages.QA.d.o, so that
both reach the maintainer and the PTS subscribers. The QA address
requires the presence of an X-PTS-Approved header to let a message
reach <package>@p.q.d.o, but I never asked Frank what his plans about
this wrt the merge were.
If @packages.d.o addresses are really such a big source of spam, we
could require the header for both domains, which isn't _that_
disruptive if we assume most users of @p.d.o addresses are developers,
and not end users.
