I am still finding these intolerable and am considering to unsubscribe.
Current issues include that 


are supposedly in reply to


but that message does not exist. They also change Subject headers. One
message has a space before "now", the other message has a tab and a
space before "now" and then also a "Closed: " prefix in front of the
whole Subject line. It also seems one of the messages is redundant with
the other (I am guessing closing an issue with a comment creates two
mails, both with content that would easily fit in a tweet; email is not
the right medium for individual messages like that). They are also not
distinguished by their Date headers, so sometimes I see the "Closed: "
mail first, other times the closing comment mail.

I also get practically useless threads like "[mediacapture-main] new
commits pushed by adam-be" with a new mail every couple of minutes when
somebody is editing a document. These are all just spam as far as I am
concerned and this is using the wrong medium or using the medium wrong
if you want. Use status.net or Atom or xmpp or whatever for these kinds
of messages. I already made a suggestion how to use email appropriately
for this kind of content.
