I have now a frst draft of a status-change mail system running.  it
works from the archive mirror on merkel, and sends out mail to
<package>@packages.debian.prg, with Bcc to the PTS (under the
'summary' keyword documented for this purpose). It turns turns out
that the PTS cannot by itself send mail to the "current maintainer" in
default of explicit subscriptions.

It does not yet produce -testing-changes emails. The list
does exist but seems to carry only upload announcements for
stable-security, for reasons not totally clear to me.

Comments welcome.

[First reaction: Email sent to the official maintainer address for
inline-octave bounces with "Post by non-member to a members-only
list". Whee!]
