What I don't like is that they are pushing their problem to the users -
now every project would have to take care of sending of notification
emails. I think this is simply wrong as any possible problem could be
much better handled in the infrastructure than by using arbitrary hacks
which will every project introduce.

Yes is is definitely last resort solution. In case we can only move
git hosting elsewhere, what would definitely not be that hard.

Anyway filing new ticket because the official documentation still
contains not working script to do the notifications and I will try to
add mailing list to CC.
