We are talking about very short mails, actually one-liners like

2015-10-03 11:43 https://reproducible.debian.net/unstable/amd64/derby changed 
from FTBFS -> unreproducible

(this one will be sent out this evening)

Well, we'd like a dedicate keywoard exactly because for a lot of people
this is not significant.
The current implementation of sending mails to $pkg@packages.d.o makes
the mail use the "contact" keyword, and imho this is bad, usually people
interested in contact only are not interested in this kind of info.

Yes, but I guess this require something "qa side", or is it enough to
just start sending mails to package_reproduci...@packages.qa.debian.org
(or package_reproduci...@tracker.debian.org, but that way old PTS user
wouldn't get those mails)
