That includes URLs such as


doesn't it?  This is by far the most frequent use of URLs in the
commit log messages for me: to cite discussions on our lists, since it
is not uncommon to have an issue be raised on a list, rather than via
the bug tracker.  If you can amend the change to leave out URLs that
point to GNU mailing list messages, it's possible that what's left
will be insignificant noise for me.  But I rather suspect that
lists.gnu.org pointers are one of your main targets...

Sorry, I cannot be responsible for the protocols supported by GNU list
servers.  It is unreasonable to ask me to correct such references, or
risk to have my commits rejected.

It is a similar annoyance to require me to do that when I need to cite
a mailing-list message.
