I started on a path to make OpenACS CVS Commit messages be on their own forum about a week or so ago (we discussed a mailing list, but abiding by the eat your own dog food principle, a forums solution would be better, plus it's just plain cool).
After some wasted time trying to figure out how the qmail queue worked (which I eventually figured out), and noticing that this wouldn't be the best way to go, I started working on a Tcl script to insert the CVS commit messages straight into forums.
I first ported the log.pl script that comes with Perl to Tcl, so that I could maintain the same output, and once successful I "forum-lized" the script with the excellent nstcl (BTW, Michael, there's a bug in nstcl's db_string documentation. Typo in the syntax)
So right now you can go to the "CVS Commits" forum on dev.openacs.org (http://dev.openacs.org/forums/forum-view?forum_id=46408) and sign up for notifications. You'll then receive the CVS commit logs at your convenience in your inbox. One thread is created per day, with commits following the first commit of the day being posted as replies.
I think there's something wrong with the AOLserver setup for sending mail out of dev.openacs.org right now, but I'm sure Dave will look into it later today. It's 3:48 AM and I won't do it now But as soon as that's fixed, you'll get the notifications.
P.S.: While I was writing this I noticed that Lars made a commit http://dev.openacs.org/forums/message-view?message_id=46418
