Good point. The reason I developed this is actually that ViewCVS (which I'm
running, too) doesn't do exactly this. It can't show you the whole list of
logs of the repository nor the whole changeset of a single repository
directly. In most cases, you can find the almost same information using
ViewCVS, too, but you'll have to do much more digging-around than with this
"thin" interface. I can see in one glance who has made which changes to the
repository. And I think you'll agree that the commit-emails that are often
used (and which are part of the svn distribution) are usefull, aren't they?
