| Suppose you put "projecta#123" into your log message to relate back to the issue tracker, and that email to projecta-tracker_at_example.com with subject "projecta#123: whatever" gets attached to issue projecta#123. The following group would accomplish this:
| [issuetracker]
| search_logmsg = (?P<bugid>(?P<project>projecta|project|project)#\d+)
| to_addr = %(project)s-tracker_at_example.com
| commit_subject_prefix = %(bugid)s:
| propchange_subject_prefix = %(bugid)s:
| The search_logmsg matches against every occurrence in the log message. Thus, if the message is "fixed projecta#123 and projectb#345", then it will match twice (with two substitution groups), and send two emails.

A couple of us (users) tried to get subversion developers interested in
a small patchset that did this and add NNTP support to mailer.py some 6
months ago.

(search for "Add NNTP support to mailer.py" in the archives)

Although some other users were interested, it seems that none of the
developers where, so the effort to get this into mailer.py died.
