Another option, which I've used extensively, is to make use of the rss 
feeds JIRA provides for all filters, issues lists and 
contributors/commitor actions.  I have separate rss feeds for added 
recently, resolved recently and blockers.  This allows me to track these 
events without crowding my email client and then watching the ones of 
interest.  Pretty much everything on the main project page has an rss 
version of it.  doesn't go down to the commit level, but rss feeds 
provide a very customizable view.  If even more trickery is required, 
Yahoo! Pipes should be able to create whatever you need.
