That's been brought up many times before, but I've never heard any
good arguments for doing that. All it does is reduce the horizontal
space available in my email client's subject column for the actual
message subject, which I want to see. I don't need to be told again
that it's for the Subversion list, because I already know that,
because my email client already sorts these messages into my
Subversion Mailing List folder. (Good email clients' sorting rules
certainly works on headers other than Subject; for example I use the
Delivered-To header.)

"Me too." I'm getting many mails duplicated too. I was also
unexpectedly unsubscribed from the list recently and had to
resubscribe myself. The duplicates have been frequent since then, but
I definitely also got them before that, so it's not like I'm now
subscribed twice or anything.

To unsubscribe, e-mail: users-unsubscribe@subversion.tigris.org
For additional commands, e-mail: users-help@subversion.tigris.org
