coreutils has a total of 6 people with write access, all of whom are
experienced, long-time contributors.

Emacs has nearly 200 and rising, of widely varying experience, some of
whom seem to take very little care with their commit messages.

So I don't think how things work for coreutils is likely to be
representative of how they will work for Emacs.
