Write a hook script to do exactly that, and make it part of the
In some future release, after that script and its features stabilize,
*then* we can consider placing into into the core code.
I fear the security aspects of something like you talk about: anybody
with commit access getting the server to issue a POST request to any
arbitrary URL *reachable* by the server? Oh ho ho... I can't even
begin to describe how many alarms that would trip with security
