I realize that burdening others to make up for my deficits is a lot to ask, and I am working on improving my spam handling, but a subject line like

And to elaborate just a bit more, even if some users go to the
extra trouble to make their mailer sort on the hidden list
headers, if someone accidentally - or intentionally - does
a 'reply' to such a message, it will go only to the
previous poster, not through the list. Then the recipient
will have no hint that this has something to do with
subversion or that it was a reply to some list message.
