AFAIK, we don't notify for every new piece of software in the archive, just
those which would fall foul of the export restrictions.  It's a bit tricky
to automatically determine which packages have crypto in them, and asking
package maintainers to pick it might be a bit hard.  I wonder if it would be
reasonable to just tell the DoC all of the new packages we have, though...
