Hi Martin,

Please send us this kind of mail a few days in advance, so we can warn
any upstreams that get our bugs sent to their mailing lists, so they can
create filters to discard all the apport mail.  Even to be able to set
up those filters for ourselves in advance would be good.

Obviously, angry upstreams arent fun.
