These are not being sent by cia.vc.  All that cia.vc does is to store commit
notifications in its DB and show them at http://cia.vc/stats/project/reportbug

Notifications (to CIA.vc as well as to mailing lists) are sent by the
svnmailer package supported by alioth admins.  See
http://wiki.debian.org/Alioth/PackagingProject and

For reportbug, the commit mails are sent to:

(A) The "cvs" keyword of the PTS (dev-ref 4.10.3) via the post-commit hooks --
which is actually mails Bcc:ed to reportbug_cvs at packages.qa.debian.org but has
the address reportbug at packages.qa.debian.org in the To: field.  These are sent
by svnmailer, See http://wiki.debian.org/Alioth/Svn

(B) The reportbug-commits mailing list, sent by the svnlog program that you
added to the post-commit hook.

You are getting mails from both A and B.  You could choose to either remove
the cvs keyword (dev-ref 4.10.1) for reportbug PTS subscription or unsubscribe
from the reportbug-commits mailing list.

However, please don't remove the svnmailer hook that sends mails to the PTS
cvs keyword.  Since it is documented in the dev-ref, that is the first place
people expect to receive commit nofitications :)



PS: when you created the reportbug-commits mailing list, I could not comment
on it because I was off for a few days and then it was too late :).  One could
send mails to reportbug-commits _also_ via svnmailer.
