That was written quite a while back.  My current opinion is that we should
probably have a notify list in the json, of email addresses we wish to
notify when the job is complete.  This could be modified slightly to have a
separate list of email address that only want to be notified in the event
of a failure.  For health check jobs, we set the email address in the
notify_on_fail list to lava-notifications mailing list.  For jobs that I
submit, I would probably want all notifications of job completion to go to
my email address so I know when the job has finished running, or has been
canceled.  Bonus points for including a summary of the results in the
email. :)
