Yes, whatever sends out those commit emails, they're not originating
from the Gitorious.org servers.

OK, let's clear this up a bit before it spreads to far. Gitorious.org
*cannot* allow arbitrary users to upload arbitrary scripts for
security reasons (far too easy to add a "rm -rf /" hook), hence the so
called web-hooks feature.
However, since we'll be making KDE specific customizations already we
can make KDE specific hooks (in whatever language) part of that, since
we'll have a certain amount of trust in-between us.

But, if it turns out to be more practical to have the actual hooks
elsewhere that's fine; less work on our end ;)
