May-be, I am wrong, but as it seems to seems me, in cases somebody
orphans a package entirely, up to 8 mails (one per branch) are being
send to commits   In cases of perl-packages add up to 8 further mails.

At least I have been swamped in such mails throughout today (some
referring to Fedora 1-5) and meanwhile have set up a filter to dump all
pkgdb mails.

Not sending them to commits@ at all. 

Commits@ become what it once originally was: A list to take CVS commits
on rpms only.
