Hi Dan,

Thanks for working on this, I have wondered why we don't use this.

Not so sure about this feature. It might cause too much noise to be useful.

I suggest we still send out the initial signoff emails when we push
the package to testing (with maybe some comments about changes), as It
might still be useful to have a ML thread for discussing the update. I
think it would be best to let the maintainer send a remainder email if
it is needed, rather than sending them automatically.
