Re: svn checkpoint: r27139 - checkpoints

From: C. Michael Pilato <cmpilato_at_collab.net>
Date: 2007-10-12 04:42:52 CEST

mailer.py on svn.collab.net has been tweaked to, for commits which touch
this checkpoints directory:

   Use 'svn checkpoint' instead of 'svn commit' in the subject line
   Suppress all diffs
   Suppress all ViewVC URLs

(This mail was a test re-generation of the commit mail for r27139.)
