Forum OpenACS Q&A: Update emails from CVS
Is there a mailing list somewhere that I can subscribe to that will
let me know what/when commits are made to the openacs4 CVS repository?
The main problem is that (I think) most people log in using the anonymous CVS account. If you can set an e-mail address for the anonymous account then you could just point it at the mailing list.
Failing that you could add a user to the CVS repository for the purpose of these updates and set the e-mail address to be the mailing list. Then add a watch to the openacs4 directory and anybody subscribed to the list would get it.
I set this up for our dotlrn cvs tree which just spams a simple .qmail
list with all of 3 static users. However, I've never set up a fancier mailing list so I don't know how much work, setup and admin, that will be.
