Thanks, Bob. I also got a few more replies off-list.

I disabled the bug notifications and cron output for now. I'll see if  
we can get an "etoys-devel" list where these reports can be sent (or  
should that be an "etoys-commits" list with follow-up discussions  
going on here?)

This should take care of the more annoying noise. Also, to get the  
signal-noise ratio up maybe we can keep a little more communication
