Bug squad members shouldn't be reading tracker messages anyway.
5. 2. Any other email either from, or CC’d to,
should go into a separate bug-ignore folder. Alternately, you may
automatically delete these emails.

You will not read these emails as part of your Bug Squad duties.
If you are curious, go ahead and read them later, but it does not
count as Bug Squad work.

I'm serious about wanting this to be a 20-minute-per-week job.
I seriously think it's possible if people follow the guidelines
strictly (ok, so then they'd be "rules" rather than "guidelines").
However, humans are harder to program than python or C.  After
years of failure with regards to the duration, it's time to try
another tactic.  I've been thinking about this for years.

The main reason I did it now is that Patchy will be sending more
info for the automatic countdowns, and should be sending more info
for the staging-merge, so I want a good place to send that stuff.
