The svnmailer is a tool that is usually called by
a subversion hook to submit commit notifications
in various ways (at the moment: mail via SMTP or a
pipe to a sendmail like program, news via NNTP, or
CIA live tracker notification via XML-RPC). It is
derived from the original mailer.py distributed
with subversion, but should be much more
consistent, more extensible, and have many more
The major change of this release is made to support the API modifications of the upcoming subversion 1.7 release. Additional changes address the long-standing python2.5 compatibility problem and the double escaping of commit messages. This release also adds a manpage for the svn-mailer script.
This is the first development release towards the 1.1.0 version. A lot of code has been refactored, and it's not finished yet. The testing framework has been improved, and the test suite has been extended. User visible changes include more built-in repository browser URL generators and the new --background command line option. A man page for the svn-mailer script, some sample configurations, and hook scripts were added. The documentation is now installed by default.
