It's possible sure. Just not something I'm probably going to get time
to do. The code is in the releng git repo, in the scripts/ dir
I believe it is somewhere else because a "grep -Ri broken *" on a cloned
repository did not show the "Broken dependencies" subject that the mails
should have. I want to suggest to add a check whether or not the amount of
broken packages is sane, e.g. up to 100. And in case it is not, the script
could add a note to the mail sent to fedora-devel and maybe releng or whover
would have to take a look then or only skip the individual reports.
