[tor-project] Notes from April 21 2016 Vegas team meeting

Right now the donations alias is used for too many things.  For example, whenever someone makes a Paypal donation, Paypal sends a note to donations at torproject.org.  At the same time, when someone has a question about a donation, or is having trouble with our donate pages, they also send a note to donations at torproject.org.  This results in a ridiculous amount of mail to this address, some important, and some not so much.  Sorting helps, but for those of us on using pop, we’re actually downloading all of those machine-generated messages and then sorting and deleting them.  A more elegant solution would be for humans asking us things to write to a different address than the one receiving the auto-generated messages.  Then those of us only interested in the human-generated messages can be removed from the other alias.
