I have a couple small things.

1) The third block's formatting looks weird on my end. Example:

"The following commit(s) were added to refs/heads/master by this push:
     new b13e925  First draft of logging module
b13e925 is described below"

I'm not sure the first few lines are necessary (the automated message
bit and repository link), so they could be removed/cleaned up.

2) Can we add a link to the commit somehow so that it closer resembles
the svn commit emails?

Other than those things, I think it's OK.
