To play the devil's advocate a bit, if we automate it without requiring announce
we end up without any additional info about reasons why package was orphaned.

So I'd say announce mail could probably go from "MUST" to "Nice to have". I.e.
please explain to prospective new maintainers what to be aware of.

Anyway, I am a fan of automation so +1 to this whole thing at least as a test
run. It's not visible from your example output, but if the owner just changed
from person A to person B instead to orphan, it would be 1 change instead of
A->orphan, orphan->B correct?

I would probably say daily reports would be overkill. Weekly could be perhaps
too long? If I think about it I'd probably invent some crazy complicated stuff
so...just pick some schedule and be prepared to change if people complain :-)
