There are currently 1081 people subscribed to samba-technical and 132
to samba-cvs.  Assuming that everyone subscribed to cvs is also
subscribed to technical (I haven't checked this), that leaves a
significant number of people who aren't interested in commit messages.
Presumably they would be subscribed to the cvs list if they were.

I'm guessing it would be unpopular.
