	Funny, I just posted about this!

	I can see mp-changes hosting these mails, but I'd actually think this  
list is a better choice, since these edits will mostly (hopefully) be  
about documentation, which is something we've always reviewed here. In  
any case, I have no problem with having them on mp-changes if the  
majority of voices speak against this list, but in such case it'd be  
nice having the From and Reply-To fields of each message constructed  
similar to how the commit logs are currently.

	About the From field: everyone who edits the wiki has to be a valid  
registered user, with a legit address, so would it be possible to have  
that as the From of each of those messages (and from there on, into  
the Reply-To field too)? If it is, we would deal with the mailing list  
accepting all those messages in some smart way, but we first need to  
know if we can have custom From's.
