Well, this isn't exactly the fault of git, per se ... it's the post-receive
hook script, and we don't manage the repo so we can't change that.  I
can put in requests to the savannah admins (and I believe I did that for
you once before to remove the git output from the email), but they are
busy and don't have great turnaround time.

Well, I _do_ look at that noise, and if I want to look at the diffs
for particular commits I use "git log -p".  If you want to look at
the diff for the most recent commit, "git pull; git log -p" will do that.
If you want to look at a particular one, use the commit identifier.
E.g., for David's commit do "git log -p bfad64bef"; add a -n 1 if
you just want to look at that one and not go all the way back.
