I guess you mean s/DDPO/DEHS

DEHS sends the notifications to the summary PTS keyword. Only addresses
subscribed to that tag will receive the notifications.

If you don't like that behaviour please contact the PTS owners and explain
your reasons, and if a concensus is reached I will be more than happy to
send the email to a different keyword. Please refer to #356826 for more

Personally, I see of little use to notify once a week instead of 'when it's
out'. But like I said, please refer to that bug report, and contact the
right party :) Very few people have complained about the current behaviour
so far.
