We would also like to have a gitweb link in the summary email, like Ævar

Overall, what should be the approach to the separate mailing lists?

Maybe I don't understand how the script is meant to work.  We configured
things here with 'mailinglist' and 'commitlist' set to different lists.  Now
if someone wants to get both the summary and per-commit emails, they need to
be on both lists.  If I understand correctly, if all 4 mailing lists are
distinct, someone who wants all the emails needs to be on all of them.  This
seems a little awkward.

I'd like there to be one list that always gets everything, and the other
lists should get subsets of the everything list.
