Subject Re: Apache Reporter Service

Hi Lefty,
Any list containing either "commits", "private" or "security" is left 
out of the generated report template for privacy and s2n ratio issues.
This is partly because the reports will be publicly available, and 
partly because a disinterest was expressed in having commits@ stats, as 
that is just the number of commits made for most projects (where 
discussion about a commit would usually happen on the dev list).

I hope this answers your question.

With regards,
