We could do that, the options are at [1]. However, see below.

This one is easy, patch under review at . (At least the docs say it's 
supposed to be done like that.)

I actually find these e-mails handy during my work with OpenStack's Gerrit 
review. Because their CI process doesn't always give feedback in matter of 
minutes unlike our current lightly-loaded over-provisioned system, I do not 
mind getting a confirmation of "yes, this works". I suppose this would be 
less-so if I was more familiar with their environemnt and tests, but as a 
newbie, I like it.

Yes, I think this makes a lot of sense, and I agree with that change.

I'm afraid that's impossible without custom code.
