I was able to create a dedicated fencepost account: "cuirass@gnu.org" to send those email notifications.

I guess we can close this one.

Thanks for your help,

1) Fencepost is administered by "accounts" (FSF Admin) not Savannah. So nothing we can do here about it.  Docs here.


2) I don't follow why there would be need for a fencepost account for guix-ci for this?  Could you say some more about what you are trying to set up?  Such as why doesn't the system that is doing the continuous integration builds send email?  Note that Savannah systems send a lot of email but none of them have matching accounts on fencepost.

I'm currently working on the GNU Guix continuous integration software Cuirass. I'd like to setup automatic email notifications.

For that, I would need an SMTP account. Do you think it would be possible to create a fencepost account named "guix-ci" for that task?
