I was wrong - Tor Weather sends a single email to welcome new relay operators to the Tor network.
It encourages them to sign up to monitor their node. (Any further emails require a manual sign-up.)

Roger just corrected my mistake on IRC:
"did you know that tor weather auto reads the descriptors, and pulls in contactinfos, and tries to deobfuscate them, and sends a welcome message to relay operators, and later sends a tshirt mail if they achieve some (buggy) set of thresholds?”

The details are in:
