The log_accum.pl script used by Savannah by default sends all of the
changes (summary + commit message + diffs) in one email even if the
commit touches files in different directories (like [1]).  Note that
with the recent size limit that was set up for lists.gnu.org by the
GNU sysadmins, some messages are not delivered if the diffs are too

The Emacs case is special (two separate lists and single-file chanages
even if the files were committed enbloc), and probably was requested
by the maintainers long time ago for consistency with the policy that
was in place until recently.
