Why not just use the emails to trigger a script that polls the server
looking for new commits since the last time it ran. Just track the
last commit you processed then run a log from last_rev+1:HEAD. Get
the data you need that way. Then you're entirely not depedent upon a
format and even if say the email notification system should get broken
for a short time your build bot would eventually catch up with all the
old work.
