While on the subject of git, can we improve the readability of the
email notifications ? Itd be better if they were as clear and simple
as the cvs notifications.
There are many problems with them; perhaps the most annoying
is the substantial repetition - it seems that whenever a branch is
updated we see duplicates of all the previous commits;
another annoyance is trying to match the comments to the file
since the message only has a cryptic long git revision number
near the comment.
