I've been trying to get something like that working during weekends more or
less since I came on. It's a hard task, especially since cygwin-apps
subscribers continuously devise newer and more interesting methods of
phrasing and formatting messages :)

Really, we'll just see whether that will really be needed. If people keep
sending oddly-formatted ITPs to the list and/or do not vote using the new
interface, getting package-maint to understand mailing list messages may be
worth sitting down and "doing right." I'm hoping package-maint's other
interfaces will be a great success and this won't be needed, though.
