That would entail searching for people who are just starting packages
and sending each one mail.  I agree it would give better results -- if
we could do it.  But it would be a lot of work.  Who would do the
work?  And how would we find people that are just starting
to get contributions to their packages?

It isn't better if it isn't feasible.
