Currently the script first creates the message to send for the commit,
and then sends it to multiple channels. Sending a different message
(shorter vs longer) to different channels for a given commit is doable
but would need some extensive refactoring to the code.

Seems this is already possible in the configuration, per channel. Some
channels have notify_silent=False:
