Hi Jeff,

I would suggest to do it step by step:
1. run mailer.py from the command line with output to stdout (set a '#'
before mail_command in mailer.conf) (with any revision number you would
like to test)
If this shows the expected results:
2. run it from the command line with output set to mail (set the
mail_command option in mailer.conf)
If this also perfectly runs:
3. try to run it by the hook (and remember that there is no environment so
you have to set paths etc.)

To directly answer your question: call mailer.py in the hook with
redirection of stdout and stderr to files (with explicit paths) so you can
see the error output there.

Hope this helps.


BTW I posted some minor corrections to mailer.py which are already
committed to trunk but not included in Subversion 1.3.0. But this
shouldn't prevent you from getting it to work at all.
