There is a git-notify script out there, but in contrib there is post-receive-email.
It's actually easy to set up:
mv post-receive post-receive.bak
ln -s /path/to/post-receive-email post-receive
chmod a+x /path/to/post-receive-email
git config --add hooks.mailinglist "email@example.com"
git config hooks.emailprefix "[scms]"
emacs ../description (make first line short description, then add more later)
Note that the script seemed to only send emails when they were pushed from outside.

If you want a better solution that sends HTML-Mails, you can use this Gem: http://github.com/bodo/git-commit-notifier
