:It's not automatically creating that page, didn't mean to make it

    Heh.  But it sure does sound like it could be automated!  Automation
    is the key to longevity.  

    In any case, it's a good experiment and it does show the potential
    for integrating some sort of commit log automation filter to pull
    out commits to branches and throw them onto a web page automatically.

	It can definitely be done with an awk and a minimal shell script.
	Similar to the way I used to generate FreeBSD-4 MFC lists, which
	I did my regex'ing the commit mail archive.  I will see if I can
	do something for branch commits and put it up on leaf.
	Kind regards,
