Comment(by demetris):

 The problem with this ticket is that it reopens a discussion without
 bringing anything new to it.

 This topic was discussed extensively during the 2.9 dev cycle.  People
 agreed then that sending emails to site admins (with or without an option
 exposed in the UI) was not a good idea.

 Most people agreed that the best solution to the problem would be an
 announcement mailing list for anyone to subscribe, like this one here:

 To raise awareness about the announcement mailing list, it was agreed it
 would be useful to include a link to it in a reworked Hello World post.
 The default post was reworked, committed, but didn’t make it into the
 final release.

 And here we are, two dev cycles later, rehashig the old topic.

 If no one reopens this discussion again during the 3.3 dev cycle, I’ll
 make sure to file a ticket myself. :-D
