Most people don't want something pushed to production just because it
shows up as a change in the repository. Normally you would have tested
a specific revision or tag copy, then you would run a script that
updates a staging location with that revision/tag and pushes copies of
that everywhere you want them. I think someone has posted here about
using a commit hook that would watch for tags with a certain pattern in
the names, so all you had to do from a client was copy to a tag with
that pattern in the name to trigger the push to production. You can run
svnlook in the commit hooks, so you might also use that to trigger extra
operations on the server side.

Sorry, false alarm. Thunderbird only shows your name in the reply-to:
and the reply even with "reply all" but it does have the list address in
the hidden part.
