Subject: pts@qa.debian.org acts as a mail amplifier
Date: Sat, 26 Nov 2005 14:25:02 +0100
Package: qa.debian.org

I accidentally discovered that pts@qa.debian.org acts as a mail
amplifier.  A single messagge to pts@qa.debian.org, containing lots of
commands of the form

subscribe ada-mode
subscribe apache2
subscribe asterisk
...

causes a mail message to be sent for each of these commands.  Asking a
only once for confirmation is preferable.

It should be possible to subscribe (and confirm) subscriptions to an
arbitrarily large number of bugs with a single email.
