Right, I'm just not really comfortable with using a bucket approach,
where suddenly all of us are bugsquad members. Thought membership in
that team had some purpose, which it would, more or less, lose this way.

I even successfully sent (and received) a test e-mail via "contact this
team". Not sure what else I can try, but we're definitely subscribed to
open/close emails, but we're not getting them :/

Sure, that's still an approach I'm not entirely happy with, but hey - if
whoever manages bugsquad says it's ok to throw everyone in there - not
my call.
