I'm working under an assumption that the email are coming from a post-commit 
hook and aren't some sort of RSS -> email gateway.  I am not clear on the 
final solution for that.

It would require updating the post-commit hook in the git repository.  Since 
we are using gitorious, I think we have to engage their administrators to 
have it updated.  We would also need a patch/new version of the hook to 
generate the emails in to form everyone is used to; that shouldn't be hard, 
but I won't have time to look at it.
