What do you mean with "positive report"? Do we need to notify Dennis
as soon as we verified the changes are working? If so, how?

For the Sugar packages what we can easily produce is a list of tickets
that has been fixed (we have a ticket for each change) and testcases
for these fixes. These can be generated automatically from the git log
so that we don't put too much overhead on the module maintainers.
