My perspective on this is that I am trying to track over 100 projects in
over 100 languages and therefore the key element of any scheme for me is
asynchronous (archived) searching capability, in particular in the context
of chronology.  (i.e. has a given project in a given language been committed
since we updated the template).  This is why a mailman archive has a certain
appeal to me.

Sayamindu had hacked up a commit indicator in Pootle, but it was imperfect
anyway and we lost it in the upgrade.
