But isn't the maintainer automatically subscribed to all messages to the
PTS?  This would mean that if the maintainer is set to a mailing list,
the list receives all commit messages.  This deceives the purpose of
having a separate list for commit messages.

For pkg-tetex, we send the commit messages with logs to the maintainer
list - no problem redirecting this to the PTS.  But the full diffs would
only clutter the list and are better in pkg-tetex-commits.
