Yeah, I share the concern. I think we have 25 incubating projects at  
the moment. We *have* to fundamentally change how we do releases at  
some point.

*shrug*. The upside of dumping stuff to people in e-mail is that it  
is most likely they look at it.

That sounds good, too. I guess if it were me I'd make the email  
actually contain the full report, too, for maximum social engineering  
benefit. Or otherwise perhaps some facebook-style teaser, like  
"project X has had suspicious-looking artifacts for Y months now,  
perhaps you should read the <full report>?".
