I propose the following. We continue to have all commits for the
entire http://svn.collab.net/repos repository be sent to
svn@subversion.tigris.org. This then requires the least amount of work
for most of the developers on the list. I frankly would like to know
what's happening with the other client projects, see the progress and
don't mind the traffic.

We then set up 3 new mailing lists


The last gets only svn commits.

This impacts the fewest number of developers and people who want a subset
of the commits can get them.

To implement this, I would use the following command in post-commit

"$REPOS/hooks/commit-email.pl" "$REPOS" "$REV" \
  -m '.*' svn@subversion.tigris.org \
  -m '^clients/gsvn' gsvn-commits@subversion.tigris.org \
  -m '^clients/rapidsvn' rapidsvn-commits@subversion.tigris.org \
  -m '^trunk' svn-commits@subversion.tigris.org

The script is smart enough to send the same commit message to multiple
lists if the commit matches.
