be great to have the project in the subject. For those that are
project maintainers in multiple projects I think that is useful.

Requests can have several target projects. Just as they can several
types. I add all actions and their targets in the mail headers though,
but I don't want anything action specific in the subject, because
it's just not logic.

Nevertheless, I'd guess most requests are about one package and one
target - and for those it would be very helpful to have a meaningful
subject with target project and package.

If a SR includes multiple packages (in the same target project), only
add the target project to the subject.

And in case the SR delivers to 20 packages in 10 projects - well, then
I'm ok with excluding them from the subject ;-)

An even better alternative would be to include only the first target,
and prefix it with "10 targets, for example $first_target".

TL;DR summary:

"Subject: Request 123456: Review wanted" is about as helpful as
"Subject: HELP !!!!!!111!!!" in a mailinglist ;-)

Then again, "Request 123456 (10 targets for example
devel:languages:ruby:extensions/rubygem-activerecord-3_2), review
wanted" is quite a long 'summary' :)

The summary should "indicate the nature of the mail", not give away its
content, but yeah, I agree that optimizing for the normal case of one
target is feasible.
