Yeah, that's fine... not sure we need a group, can just use ACLs to
give the people access who need it.

Yup, my conversion script already does this.

I'd say no; just merge into one list/

I like the <module:branch> approach, but I think you should include the
branch name even if it's master.
There's no need to prefix the subject line with [xfce4-commits];
mailman takes care of that.

I assume you mean commit messages? That link doesn't say anything
about changelogs. I'm ok with it for commit messages, though
personally I don't intend to write more than a one-liner unless I feel
further explanation is necessary.
It's clear, though, that xdt-commit as-is will make commit messages
that look awful in git shortlogs.
