There are two "commitfilter" systems, both of which are in a form of shutdown.
The first is the SVN legacy system, which was at commitfilter.kde.org.
This will only be working for a certain subset of Git commits. This
system also has some serious security issues.
The second system was powered by a custom modification which someone
did for us to projects.kde.org. This allowed you to subscribe to
projects and receive all commit mails for that repository. It didhave
a number of serious limitations though, although it was secure.
Both of them are now effectively read only, with their web interfaces
no longer in operation, but they are continuing to process commit
mails. Should you need to be unsubscribed, you'll need to file a
