I have created a ticket to address this action, and written:

I am somewhat dubious about the security of having root email being
distributed by a mailman list. I'm also not keen on being attached to this
firehose. What I would like to suggest to start is that we archive the root
email locally on the machine in a known location, and that some effort be made
to tune down the volume of email (by making cron scripts un-noisy for
instance) so Shawn isn't so overwhelmed.


Any comments welcome there.  I'll start work on archiving the email and
seeing if some "tuning down" can be done.
