I spam everyone with a failed package in my reports.  Most responses
are "thanks, fixed now", with the occasional "not my problem, it's
another package's problem", and of course my favorite "not my problem,
your scripts are broken!" :-)  Because I'm only running it monthly or
so right now, it doesn't seem to be so much mail that the package
owners get upset.  Yours is interesting, and often trivial to fix, but
I wouldn't send it more than monthly to everyone personally.

BTW, I fixed biosdevname (add permalink/ in the URL).  I can't fix
pgp-tools because upstream rarely releases tarballs, I have to build
it out of svn directly, so please add that to your exclude list.
