That was a real reply that was meant to be helpful. If it came across
as sarcastic, I apologize.

I'm on several CVS commits lists[1] and my inbox would be overwhelmed if
I didn't use procmail to filter them heavily.

A procmail rule[2] like

* ^svn commit:.*- clients/

would send the clients commit messages straight to /dev/null, so they
never even make it to your mbox. Thus it shouldn't cause any problem
with your disk quotas at your ISP and you never have to download them to
your mail client.


[1] ...including the GNOME CVS commits list, which is at very least an
order of magnitude busier than the SVN list. To my amazement, there are
people who actually read all of the commits.

[2] This is, of course, untested. I don't recall off the top of my head
if '-' or '/' need to be quoted in a procmail regular expression.
