SVN::Notify is easy to setup and sends beautiful commit messages.
We recently converted a project to git and we miss a tool this good.
It sends commit messages. You can make them pretty. You can configure the heck out of it. Is good.
Replacing the standard commit emails with the ones from this module have made life a lot more pleasant. The ability to hyperlink based upon regex is really nice.
This is a really useful tool that helps me keep track of what the rest of the team is doing. It does everything I need, and the author has been receptive to making it even easier to use.
This is a great program. I haven't tried using it as a module, but that's because the included svnnotify program does everything I need. The best feature is that you can easily send mulitpart messages -- so developers using mutt to read their e-mail get legible text, and the managers using Thunderbird or Outlook get beautifully-formatted HTML mail.
It's also very easy to install; even on RedHat.
Docs are a little sketchy - no mention of HTML::ColorDiff in the perldocs, for example.
Would be nice to have a sensible example post-commit example using the available features, eg
svnnotify --repos-path "$1" --revision "$2" \
--svnlook /usr/bin/svnlook \
--user-domain mydomain.com \
--to firstname.lastname@example.org \
--subject-prefix [SVN] \
--strip-cx-regex '^trunk/' \
--handler HTML::ColorDiff \
--svnweb-url ' myserver/websvn/listing.php?rev=%s'
ColorDiffs aren't quite as nice as cvsspam - it doesn't highlight differences within a line.
Otherwise very good - thanks a million!
Extremely easy to set up, great documentation, and very useful output.
Works exactly as advertised. The included svnnotify script just works when added to an SVN repo's commit hooks.
