Bug Description

Bug #337658 turned off success notifications for PO package imports. Apparently template imports will still send success notifications. This is less wrong, but still quite wrong.

Most package uploaders will get at most one success email about this (i.e. one email per package), thus making this a 'low' priority bug. If this becomes a large annoyance to everyone, we should fix it by not sending success notifications for templates to packagers (but still keep sending them to upstream uploaders, at least those doing a manual upload).

I get a rediculous amount of import e-mails from Rosetta, they're pointless and I really don't enjoy having to delete 100s of e-mails each day from Launchpad. It should e-mail only if there's a problem.

Danilo asked for my reasoning. My reasoning is that pointless e-mails are a pain.

i seem to get one email per file here ... my openoffice upload (a one line fix in debian/rules) resulted in 270 mails for 270 different files over the last three days, please set this bug to high at least, its unbearable ...

Oliver: just to clarify — it's actually not one email per file. What you uploaded is along the lines of 20000 files. OpenOffice and KDE are huge, I do understand it's a problem for you, and we'll try to fix this asap.

Just to note that we continue to get complaints about this from all sides. I propose we turn off email notifications for *any* successful import.

Being quiet on success sounds good … and Unixy. One always (in theory) has the opportunity to poll the web interface for more recent status information.
