Hi Paul,

> I woke up to 70+ inn bug and enhancment reports that look like they were vomited out of some automatic system.

These mails come from the new INN Trac installation.
I forward the announce below.

> Is this going to happen often?

The bug tracking system is currently being initialized with bugs and enhancements.
You can expect some more reports the following days.  Afterwards, once
the system has been initialized, the traffic will be much lower.
