There sure is. So, based on those numbers above ^^ there's not really a 
case to jump in and go "ahoy, let's send the results to the list" as 
there really is no (not many) results at the moment.

So, to start - I'm hoping this email generates interest in using the 
success bot, and then the plan is to change the output location from the 
wiki, to auto send an email (that, or scrap the wiki diff to generate an 
email) :)
