You have a lot of these kinds of line-wrapped diffstat lines.

The reason is *probably* that you've just cut-and-pasted from your
(very wide) terminal where you ran your scripts into the email.

Becaue if you run "git diff --stat" normally in a germinal, it will
take the terminal width into account.

If you run it in a script to a file or pipe, it will default width of
80 columns.

You could make your scripts just do "--stat=80" to do that, but you
might also consider using "xsel" to avoid the cutting-and-selecting
part, and just do

my-release-script | xsel

to select the output of the script, and then paste it with your mouse...

This is not a big deal, but it does make those diffstats ugly, and I
_suspect_ it's because you didn't realize what is going on.
