Could you maybe remove the SVN changes tracking from the mailing list? Everyone can see the changes, while (or before) updating and can read the commit comment. So the various mails droped to my inbox are quite spamming (no offense, just pointing this out).
I think it is enough (and valuable) to have only the info mails in the mailing list.
What do you think?
I setup the mailing list specifically, at Art's request, for SVN repository updates. Though I have to admit myself the amount of commit traffic is quite intimidating. Can't you just setup a filter to remove the repository mail if you don't need it? I like to see the SVN updates automatically as does Art and biggeruniverse.
The other option is setup a seperate mailing list but I would not want to do that unless absolutely necissary because the admin interface is annoying, and I should think it will increase the amount of admin overhead I have to do.
