I understand that everything is still in development. However I don't
think a public mailing list is a suitable testbed. My preferred solution
would be to make receiving such e-mails opt-in. Everyone who wants to
get informed by e-mail may subscribe to this feature. I personally
prefer and regularly check DDPO because it is quite, very informative
and can be used on demand. The only other option I can think of is to
filter pkg-java mails.

Ok. I could live with unstable as well as long as we agree on one
