Bug squad members shouldn't be reading tracker messages anyway.

It's not about bug squad, but about all developers. The comment of the lilypond users to the bug reports are *extremely* important for development. On the other hand, all those hundreds of automated comments to the bug reports are totally unnecessary.

To me the main problem is that we have so many automated comments to a bug report that the bug-lilypond list is swamped with those notifications and the relevant human responses are hard to detect (I now typically ignore all bug mails, since it simply takes to long to find out which of the ~50-70 mails per day are automated and which are relevant).
