About the transient errors, that's something I hadn't thought about,
you're right there. The other issue could be addressed via an opt-in
scheme. Maintainer A sends an e-mail to an special account that has a
.forward which processes the e-mail and puts said maintainer in the
opt-in list.

That list is later checked when processing the logs. A very rough
implemenation of a solution modulo the opt-in management and the log
filtering is attached in this message. I'm by no means a shell script
guru, but it looks quite simple to implement.
