The original idea which is still planned is to disable email for pkgdb and rely
on FMN to do the notifications, but as we haven't got in place the mechanisms to
add FMN rules to new packagers and check that all current packagers have FMN

It will reduce the amount of notification as you can ask FMN to wait for X
minutes after seeing the first messages before sending the notification and it
will allow people to tweak their filter and ask for irc notifications or no
notifications in some cases.

I got them on irc, I have a pretty good idea of what you did with them ;-)
