Can you ask them, please? I am not on that list.

Notifications get sent to the same mailing list as the production
instance uses and contain links to the tickets in the testing instance,
so it's only natural that Google picks them up. The question is: How do
humans get to arrive on the testing instance?

Modifying the pages would be possible, but comes at a cost. Currently
we can simply copy over anything from the production instance (in
particular the database which also contains the wiki pages) and thus
test in almost the same environment. The further we deviate from the
production instance, the more work we have to do for syncing both.
