I would suggest modifying the bot's comments to point out the fact
it's an automated message and not an actual user, so people aren't
replying to it and expecting a response.
It may make more sense to include this functionality as part of the
upload process and notify the maintainer at that point, so comment
areas aren't filled with bot spam every time there's a new package
revision for packages with legitimate "binary" file usage.
