[Catalog-sig] ANN: PyPM Index - build notification by author; import data

Is there any place other than here to make some feedback on what you're
proposing via pypm ?

I can see that the emails appears in clear for instance, and I don't
think it is a good idea. Spammers bots are looking for that.

Also, even if the service you propose is great (that's good to know
there are some ways to get binary packages easily), adding another tool
(pypm) to the stack, and refering only to this one on your pages seems a
bit confusing. People start to use tools like setuptools/distribute and
pip, and, oh, there is another one !

Otherwise, I think you're adding some great things to the current index:
I do like to have a feed with the failing builds and the list of imports
with the same name.
