I did following modifications earlier:

- Customize the notification mail body to just link to the
successful/failed build.
- Add Header: List-ID: FreeBSD CI Build Notifications <>
- Add Header: Precedence: bulk

All three items are done by "Email-ext plugin."  Hope these changes
can make it less annoying, easier to filter and work nicer with other
MTAs.  It also can run scripts before sending mail.  In the future, we
can seek for ways to make notification mail more useful, such as using
digest scripts like under tools/tools or utilities
from tinderbox.  I'm reading the code and doing test when I am free.
This might take some time.  As always, helps and suggestions are
definitely welcomed.
