Then you need a mailing list containing _only_ the commits from Pootle?

Because, if you're willing to search through all the commits across all
projects, then you could as well clone the repositories and search
through their log with git. A repository is more compact and easier to
search than the archive of a mailing list with all the diffs in it.

If this still seems inconvenient, we'll come up with another idea to
make your work-flow as efficient as possible, but possibly without
resorting to a jumbo mailing list receiving all the commits across all

Ah, didn't even know that.
