No, it's the same as for ser, with --first-parent added to git rev-list.

Current format:

$subject = "git" . ":" . $repos_name . ": " . ${$info{"log"}}[0]

I think we could remove the repo_name, or replace it somehing shorter.
My preffered format would be:

$subject = "git" . ":" . ${$info{"log"}}[0]$ . "(" . $ref ")"

(the most visible part == commit summary rather then branch).

What do you think?

BTW: I think I finally found out how to get mail only for the new
commits (the --first-parent is an improvement, but with complicated
commit trees it sometimes get confused and outputs too many commits):

git rev-parse --not --all|  grep -v $new |
 git rev-list --stdin $new ^$old

I'll try to play with test a little, maybe I can fix the commit new
branch part too.
