Done some minutes ago (sorry, I didn't find time for it earlier);
Initial results:

Keith G. Robertson-Turner: "This account is protected against spam,
using the SpamArrest service, which is a 'C/R' or 'Challenge/Response'
service. [...]" 

/me wonders if Keith was wise enough to whitelist the E-Mail address
used by bugzilla.redhat.com. Keith? 

aaron.bennett_AT_olin.edu -- "Delivery failed."
colin_AT_fedoraproject.org --  "User unknown"
lemenkov newmail ru -- "User unknown"



/me wonders how many of the other mail addresses from owners.list don't
work but chooses to simply ignore that for now.

Opinions on that?

And opinions on this one? We would also need to force a rebuild of all
noarch packages to to make this work efficient. And I suspect that a lot
of people don't like that or a "rebuild everything in Extras for each
Core release".
