(thanks for taking a look -- I've read the rest of the thread, will reply here)

Sure, thats one possibility, but lets do that through the continuum
UI, which is a more lightweight process (each pom configuration change
requires a release, releases have overhead etc).

I tried to explain in a recent thread, in short:
 * Currently all notifications are sent to dev@, which IMO isn't the best option
 * It seems the continuum UI allows us to configure notifications with
a finer granularity ("on error" messages can be treated differently
than build successes or failures from a notification PoV)
 * If you're subscribed to all Commons lists (such as dev, issues,
commits) you shouldn't notice any difference WRT success and failure
messages on a per commit or nightly basis when we're done (we can drop
the error notifications, mainly caused by CI problems so far,
configure them on a per project basis as deemed fit, or retain all of
them on issues@ -- this is TBD)

Roadmap is:
1) Release v10
2) Configure notifications via continuum UI
3) Iterate over (2) as needed (no more releases for that)

Please let us know if this addresses your question above.
