The mails are currently sent by hand, yes. The reason is that the code
used was only exercised by this script, so I wasn't always very
confident about the result, and I wanted to manually check the result
before sending all the mails. Now that almost all the data comes from
UDD, that is also used by other services, I'm much more confident of the
correctness of the data.
But it also gives the opportunity to ignore some issues, like currently
testing migration problems caused by the mips/mipsel buildd backlog.
I've added to my agenda to send those mails on 27/02 and 13/03 (the
mails curently say "twice a month", and nobody complained about that
yet), but I don't think that we should switch to an automated process
since it could result in a lot of emails being sent for wrong reasons.
