I'm sorry too, but sending email to /dev/null as a punishment for not
reading -devel-announce in 14 days (for whatever reason) is everything
but "polite".

It's true that it takes very little time to read the docs and find this:

echo "emailforward: foo@bar.com" | gpg --clearsign | mail change@db.debian.org

I'll do that. So, no, I didn't mean "please do this for me", but I will
not insist that you have to do it either. Let people lose their email
and see what happens. It will be fun.
