I'm happy to work on this. I mostly wanted to check that the idea was
agreeable first. I'll try not to come up with too many suggestions
that cause other people work -- other than the work of reading my long
Awesome. Reading and replying to emails is what I do best at this point
I an ideal world, we would use the upstream post-receive-email
unmodified. I'm not sure if that will be possible or not, as we'd
want to pipe mail to the send-unicode-email.py script, rather than
just through sendmail.
A patch to the upstream script to allow setting the path to 'sendmail'
might be in order. And at the least, a simple puppet exec could fix
that one part and leave us otherwise using the upstream hook.
That sounds sensible
My biggest concern is that the format of the notifications has
a good bit since the current fedora-git-commit-mail-hook was added.
The upstream hook should produce more useful results for various
operations, adding tags, branches, and such. But as with any change,
some people are bound to not like it. (I admit that I'm not all that
fond of the output for the simple case of pushing a new commit, as the
summary is added after the diff.)
Hmmm, most of the changes I think are harmless aside from people getting
thrown off the first time. I do agree that the summary being at the
bottom is a little bit more bothersome than most of the changes. Also,
it looks like we'd lose the X-Git-Module header which is sort of
important for at least some people.
BTW, Jeremy, do you happen to recall just what the origin of the
current script is? I was trying to find a common ancestor that I
could use to cherry-pick patches from git.git into.
The current script was originally running on git.freedesktop.org
written by Carl Worth, then hijacked and tweaked more than I would have
liked by me to fit our needs
