Actually, the convention we've been using is to send a message with "commit"
in the subject line directly to abiword-dev. This way we can use email
filters to dump them into separate mailboxes. Also, it allows us to batch a
bunch of related commits into one email transaction.

Between that and Bonsai, I think we've got things fairly well covered.
