:>     Would you like to undertake that job?  I don't think it would be too

:>     history file itself (e.g. /cvs/CVSROOT/history) by the transaction ID
:>     and then have a program get the file list from the history file.
:oh, I didn't know we had transaction ids... that's cool!

    Yup.  But I'm not sure if the ID is available to the commit prep
    scripts that generate the email.
