The original poster is Kevin Pilch-Bisson, a more-than-competent
programmer who, if he really needed this info, could hack it into
mailer.py in 15 minutes flat, I'm betting. :-)

Also, most decent mailing list software lets you custimize the header
and footers of outbound mails -- that's a prime place to put the
canonical repository URL for the repository in question (though, yes,
I know, not everyone is going to be using a mailing list per repos, or
even a mailing list at all).
