The mail itself is currently not that informing. It is a lot of boiler plate and repetition. Only the link to the actual commit is useful information.

I think it would be a huge improvement to have the highlights of the scan results posted in a nice readable format. A sort of condensed version of the page at https://sdwalker.github.io/uscan/index.html

This is a development list where the package maintainers and devs hang out, so it is relevant information. Only the current form isn't optimal IMHO.
