It's hard to review commits if they are spread across multiple emails.
Why not just commit with a single repoman invocation? At least the way I
do things is I take my CVS commit message from the ChangeLog entry and
if it has something like "Version bump and remove old ebuild" then it
first fine as a cvs commit message.

If you have a problem with a policy then start a thread to change the
policy to see where the majority opinion lies. Jaywalking with other
people does not make your action any more legal (assuming a country
where its never legal). Rules should be changed/improved when they don't
make sense any more instead of ignored (for example some countries allow
jaywalking if there's no traffic in sight).
