The notifications about new or outgoing changesets sent to this list
(and to the crew mailinglist for new changesets in crew) currently
consist of a single mail with the summary of each change and a link
to hgweb showing the full change.
In a two different projects that switched to Mercurial I was asked,
if I could provide patches, too, which I implemented this week. The
patches are sent using the patchbomb extension and are in the same
thread as the initial notification mail.
An example for the result:
dive4elements/flys at 4250: 8 new changesets:
[PATCH 1 of 8] Convert GaugeOverviewInfoService into RiverInfoService:
[PATCH 2 of 8] Change Servlet config for RiverInfoService
Is there an interest to have the same for this list?
Or is this only useful if there is a separate mailing list to not
disturb the normal discussion happening here too much?
The shell script I use to generate the push notifications is now
published at http://hg.intevation.org/mercurial/toolbox/
