On the HOW; I object implementing email/xmpp/whatever support into the Enforcer and/or Signer because I don't think thats their purpose.

On the IF; Of course there should be ways to get notifications from our software, I feel we are lacking a lot here. This is somewhat also connected to the monitoring of OpenDNSSEC. If we could provide better logging, for example tagging log message with error/info codes etc for a lot easier parsing, implement a simple hook/event system and provide more tools and/or better output from existing tools then any system administrator will be able to integrate OpenDNSSEC with their environment being emails, XMPP or whatever. This essentially kills a few birds with the same stone.
