It takes away too much time and in addition it's annoying to have this
stuff handled manually and not automatic. We need to focus the limited
resources of the security team on preparing the actual updates.

The templates still need more editing until they can be sent out, the
templates generated by dak are not suitable for direct sending. Still,
the advisories are more well-formed and standardised than before, so
it should straight-forward to convert them.

The solution would be a script, which is subscribed to d-s-a, transforms
the advisory mails and auto-commits them. If a transformation error is
detected, a note can be sent to debian-www@l.d.o and fixed manually.
