  I just had a comment about this: I feel we should split this mailing
list, as it serves two purposes:

  * svn logging;
  * occasional messages;

  The verbosity of the first renders the second hard to read and notice.
Could we create another mailing list, like pkg-ruby-extras-svn for the
svn log, and keep this one for real discussions ?

  NEW is already really slowing down - some packages there have been
waiting for more than a month. We should move one. My guess is that
there is no reason for it to be exhaustive for the first upload.
