It would be useful if mails from aur-notify could say in the email subject line if I was the person who uploaded / am currently maintaining that package.

This would avoid having to set up email filters for each and every package, and would also enable people to scan down a list of email subjects to identify ones to respond to. Something like:

AUR Comment for pkgname - which you maintain


[maintainer] AUR Comment for pkgname


AUR Comment for pkgname (maintainer)

How about having an additional mail header? "X-User-Role: maintainer"/"X-User-Role: watcher" or something like that. That way, you won't have to maintain a local package list yourself and sane MUA will be able to filter notifications.

Yep, anything of that kind would be very helpful, I think.
