Right, but like I said I'm not sure it scales anymore; there's too
much stuff in svn to want to get an email per commit. If you limit to
only your projects, then you miss out on learning things by accident,
which is the real value. For example, if you are a library maintainer,
it's very helpful to happen to see commits where people are trying to
use the library. And everyone benefits from noticing new experimental
projects as they appear.

Maybe a daily summary like:
   gnome-panel - whoever (3), someone-else (2)

where it's all linkified going to the appropriate svn/git web (could
also have mouseover tooltips showing details so you could quickly

Then the daily summary could be in the planet gnome feed, perhaps.

I don't know, I'm sure there are better solutions, and it's academic
unless someone turns up who decides to try and code something. Just
throwing out ideas.
