Package: painintheapt
Version: 0.20181120-1~bpo9+1
Severity: wishlist

Dear Maintainer,

Since version 0.20180212, in commit┬╣ 1660b436 which added XMPP pubsub
support, among other things, changed the format of the message sent
directly to XMPP recipients and MUC's.

The older version used to send messages prepended with a string like:

  "1 package update(s) for hostname\n\n"

However newer versions split this information into a separate 'subject'
field, which my XMPP client (Pidgin usually) ignores.  It's also absent
from MUC group messages entirely.

The effect is that I'm no longer able to discern what hosts have which
