Ah, cool. Thought it was likely to exist. And it looks trivial to use:

I've just installed it on bleb.org and done:

   $ r2e new testemail at bleb.org # This would be maemo-community at maemo.org
   $ r2e add http://maemo.org/community/council/rss.xml
   $ cat >.rss2email/config.py <<EOC
DEFAULT_FROM = 'council at maemo.org'
SMTP_SERVER = "localhost:25"
   $ r2e run --no-send

Then put a cronjob in place for every 15 minutes to do 'r2e run'.
Seems to work perfectly.

I'm happy to set this going at maemo-community at maemo.org, if someone
on the council can subscribe council at maemo.org to the list.
