I think this is a bit more complicated that it should be. Why don't just
create boost-wide commit emails mailing list? All changes will be reflected
in archives, so in case of emergency you'll have all the data to replay
missing commits.

Of course, what happens if ml archive is destroyed too as the same time...
but that's less likely.
