It helped with one bug I'm subscribed to. Nobody had written to it for
some time and I got a mail telling me it was now marked invalid (or
somesuch). I checked that it was still happening and found the package
had regressed to an earlier (worse) behaviour and was able to comment to
that effect. Any other developer subscribed will also have been poked
and now knows that things are worse again and I think this is a very
good thing.

Any opinion expressed is mine (or else I'm playing devils advocate for
the sake of a good argument). My employer had nothing to do with this
communication.
