Bas, this looks like great work. I like the idea of splitting it into
summary and detail emails. I would like to make one small suggestion.
It would help me (not being a full-time developer) and people not
already familiar with the system if you simply spelled out what these
acronyms stand for and refer them to http://www.debian.org/devel/wnpp/
to understand them fully.
I am a bit surprised I didn't find these definitions clearly spelled out
in the developers-reference. Section 9 goes over the process, but
doesn't have a chart of definitions as the web page does.
I also just noticed that the web page needs updating to include the
definition of ITA.
