SYNOPSIS

cvsmail [-CcdfGgqv] [-u url] [-U url]

DESCRIPTION

cvsmail can be used from a procmailrc(5) file to add cvsweb.cgi links to FreeBSD commit mail, allowing you to easily view the diffs for a particular commit.

The following flags are accepted:

-C Print diffs or links to diffs in context diff format, rather than the default unified diff format.
-c Print links to human-readable, coloured diffs, instead of the default plain diffs.
-d Include diffs in the output, as well as links to the diffs.
-f Munge the data so that a line starting with "From" and a space has a >’ character insterted before it. This prevents some MUAs from assuming that line is the start of a new message if the mailbox is in traditional mbox format. It will also insert a dummy "From" line as the first line of the message if the first line read by cvsmail is not already a "From" line.
-G This option causes the URLs for diffs to be included both after the individual change lines, and before the actual diff. This option only has an effect if both -d and -g are also specified.
-g This option causes all the URLs for diffs, and, if -d is specified, the diffs themselves, to be included at the end of the output, rather than immediately after the ‘‘changes’’ line for that file.
-q Operate quietly. This is the default if stderr is not a terminal.
-v Operate more verbosely. This is the default is stderr is a terminal.
-u Specify an alternate cvsweb.cgi script. The default is "http://cvsweb.FreeBSD.org/". Please note that the argument to this must include the trailing slash.
-U Specify an additional cvsweb.cgi script, to be used in addition to the default. As with the -u flag, the argument to this flag must include the trailing slash.

EXAMPLES

The following procmailrc(5) rule might be used.
:0
* ^Sender: owner-cvs-all@freebsd.org
{
  :0
  * X-FreeBSD-CVS-Branch:.*RELENG_4
  | cvsmail -f $MAILDIR/lists/freebsd-cvs-stable

:0 * X-FreeBSD-CVS-Branch:.*RELENG_ | cvsmail -f $MAILDIR/lists/freebsd-cvs-other

:0 | cvsmail -f $MAILDIR/lists/freebsd-cvs-all }

This will separate your commit mail into separate folders based on the CVS branch affected. If you are a committer, you might prefer a rule more like this.

:0
* ^Sender: owner-cvs-committers@freebsd.org
{
  :0
  * Subject:.*cvs commit:
  {
    :0
    * X-FreeBSD-CVS-Branch:.*RELENG_4
    | cvsmail -f $MAILDIR/lists/freebsd-cvs-stable

:0 * X-FreeBSD-CVS-Branch:.*RELENG_ | cvsmail -f $MAILDIR/lists/freebsd-cvs-other

:0 | cvsmail -f $MAILDIR/lists/freebsd-cvs-all }

:0 lists/freebsd-committers }
