True. But getbuildlog will get all buildlogs (for a version), and not
“new” buildlogs, so a notification would be hard(er) to setup. But,
still, it should be better than nothing.
And incidentally “getbuildlog $pkg last” seems broken (I did file a
bug), so probably not many people use it regularly (in this mode).

Ah, interesting, thanks.

The post is http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2003/08/msg01286.html,
but re-reading it now it might be that the “maintainers” it talks about
are the buildd maintainers, and not the package maintainers.
