I'm currently hacking CVSROOT/cfg.pm to include URLs for added and 
deleted files as well in our commit messages. Here's a first test:


I have a couple of questions/thoughts:

* Do we really want this? :) I do because it's annoying to not being 
able to click on new files in order to see what's in them, but for 
larger numbers of new/removed files, this would add a bit of data to the 

* If you take a look at 
you'll notice that the message body contains no indication that 
data/main/team.cgi is located in the site/ subdirectory (as opposed to 
src/). So in order to make this really work we'd have to add that 
information to the messages.

* Another option would be to list added and deleted files in the 
revision summary somehow (then they could be handled by the existing 
code I think).

Input welcome,
