I really don't know.  but I'll take it up with infrastructure@ or #asfinfra
on monday and find out.

my thought is that if there is a chance that we can control the mailer on a
per-PMC level that I'd rather it be in our control in perl.  so, let's
attack that issue first with infrastructure and go from there.  I'll follow
up here on monday with my success or failure.

in preparation, working on the subclass would be great.  based on our other
discussions you have a place to start.  the only thing I would add to that
is that using a filename in the subject as opposed to the first line of the
commit probably makes more sense for a broad project like this, where people
may only care about portions of the codebase.  but we can always tweak it if
I'm wrong.

thanks for helping out with this.
