Such as the package subscription stuff just mentioned on debian-qa? I
don't think having a brief email sent each time a package is autobuilt
would be too much. (I'd prefer a single email sent when a new version
is uploaded, build reports for all architectures, but I don't thik the
buildd's are syncronized that well.)
