Program for sending email messages for CVS repository commits

This program may be used for sending email messages for CVS repository activity. There are a number of different modes supported. It can send messages for every change to the repository like syncmail, or it can be used to send a single message for each commit. In the latter case, a list of all the files affected by the commit will be assembled and listed in the single message. This is similar to how commit_prep and log_accum work, but is more efficient.

An additional option allows for diffs to be calculated for the recent changes, and either appended to the message like syncmail or added as an attachment neater. See the -d and -a options in the documentation.
