Those emails are sent from root at since that is an email account that we actually check (a list actually).  If someone gets one of those emails without knowing where it came from, they can reply and we will get that email.

Ok, so its currently feasible for GnuPG committers to handle fixing build breaks as they happen?  If so, that's good news.  Most of the GnuPG test suite is currently running as part of the Jenkins builds, so that should help.  We do need to write more tests for the Android-specific side of things.
