Re: Email postcommit hook, subscription, properties ....

i have written a couple of little perl scripts to do much less offensive
reporting. the first uses the output from post-commit to add a
transaction to a file. the other send the info to the mailer and clears
the log file. both pretty simple.

every night i have a crontab that executes the second script to the
generate email for the users in the group. that way they, the users,
get only one mail, at the beginning of the day. it is their
responsibility to review the changed list and deal with them appropriately.
