Description:Please set up a mailing list for cvs commits emails. It helps to keep track of what is happening in CVS, and makes understanding the source easier.


Reini Urban mailed setup instructions for this:

assuming you have allready setup a list asterisk-cvs@lists.digium.com,

install syncmail somewhere on the cvs server, say in /bin/syncmail. syncmail is available from:

export CVSROOT=<your write access info here>
cvs -z4 co CVSROOT
vi CVSROOT loginfo
# in this file put:
asterisk/codecs/g729 true
asterisk/codecs/dialogic true
asterisk /bin/syncmail %{sVv} asterisk-cvs@lists.digium.com

then do:
cvs -z4 commit CVSROOT/loginfo

that's all.

CVSweb or ViewCVS would be a good tool, also. I was trying to figure out how to use CVS to get a mirror of the whole RCS file so that I could explore the source through ViewCVS on my own, but it appears either there aren't functions in CVS to do this or I don't know how :)

Personally, I have a very tough time of keeping track of things without ViewCVS :)

The list made availabe from asterisk.gnuinter.net is a changelog mailinglist, it is _not_ a cvs commit mailinglist. The list I suggest, and which is rather common in open source projects mails out diffs of the commits. It helps to understand exactly how a certain change is implemented.
