First let me say that this is in overall a great idea and worth
continuing with it. So thanks for setting those bots up. I think that
with few more tweaks we can achieve a desired effect for most of the people.

So I vote for c.

Namely, commits bot is much more frequent comparing to blog and
specially StackOverflow ones. Later ones are more important for most
people, so there is a problem, commits bot overshadows those later two.
You cannot distinguish their posts easily from commit posts.

I therefore propose that commits go to the separate channel while only
the daily summary report is posted to #squeak channel.

That way we'll achieve both: showing the activity for the broader public
in main channel , while notifying the commits ASAP for those interested
in a separate channel.
