What kind of mails are we referring to?
In general, it's OK to use the package tracker to relay important data
about the packages... but I don't think that a dedicated keyword helps
here. We have a "build" keyword already and I believe that reproducible
mails should be sent via that keyword as well.
That said it depends on the mails... we really want only notifications
when something significant changes.
About the implementation it can be done simply by mailing a specific
email address that encodes both the package and the keyword.
