I think this is desirable.  gcc-cvs should only mail about changes to master
and release branches.

I thinks commit mails for changes to all branches are desirable (including
refs/heads/devel/ branches, including user and vendor branches) - but they
should only be for changes that are new to the repository.  Existing
practice in SVN was that all branches generated mails, we simply didn't
have so many branches.

For user/vendor branches that are rebased (a desirable action), is there any
mechanism for excluding unchanged rebased commits from being seen as

I’m guessing that public development branches will probably gravitate to the
no non-FF mode, if they are to be used by people other than the primary author

Except that long-lived public development branches will need to merge master periodically, and that will be a non-FF merge.
