It could be:


Packages with this email will be automatically added to the tracker page for
the Debian Science Team:


Then one can subscribe to the whole team through tracker.d.o in order to get
all DAK/BTS messages (i.e. the same as the current debian-science-maintainers@
list). Or it is also possible to subscribe to indivdual packages. So this
scheme offers a lot of flexibility.

The only problem is that, currently, messages sent to that email go to
/dev/null, which could be a problem if someone try to contact the package
maintainer through that mean. But this situation is only temporary, since buxy
(the maintainer of distro-tracker, the software behind tracker.d.o) intends to
fix this.
