18 Even in case of projects where I'd already get mail, I treat CC
19 specially in filters to try to not miss it. esp relevant on some
20 noisy aliases like proxy-maint@
22 /If/ some aren't happy at the idea, maybe there could be a opt-out
23 feature that'd be adjustable on d.g.o? (having some of these automated
24 things be configurable could be something to think about either way).
