 We need an admin-only tool that will allow us to mass-email plugins.

 One exists but currently can only be run by a server admin, which limits

 1) Provide a list of plugins

 2) Provide an email subject and body with basic substitutions

 3) The tool would then email everyone with commit access and listed owner
 the message

 Substitutions needed:


 With Helpscout you can pre-fill everything BUT the body:

 So it doesn't look like we can use that for our bulk-mail tool.

 If it's secure and has the capability to be given a usable UX, whatever
 tool is used on the back-end should be fine.

 Limiting the number of plugins mailed at a time is also fine. Handling
 more than 50 of those at a stretch is usually pretty annoying anyway :)
