When I commit a message to the Emacs repository, a message is sent to
emacs-di...@gnu.org with the content of the changes I installed.
This is good.
These messages have in the "From:" the email address of the committer. While
I find this choice convenient, it is sadly incompatible with the way SPAM is
being fought nowadays. More specifically, it means that a machine at @gnu.org
sends email messages that claim to come from @iro.umontreal.ca. Currently
this still works, but more and more sites set up DMARC such that recipients
will consider such messages as forgeries.
Could we change these "diffs email" so they stop pretending that those
messages come from the committer?
