There's a middle-ground here which I like, myself.
1.5) the package x maintainer(s) is responsible to find all packages
y and posts a todo list on the dashboard
I like this method, but at the same time, it requires one to
constantly scan the todo lists to see if a package of yours is there.
Do we have any other options, or is it just there 2 (3) ?
I'd prefer to go with "easiest" in these cases, because some of these
rebuilds can be big.
