SVN/Notify version 2.85

This class may be used for sending email messages for Subversion repository activity. There are a number of different modes supported, and SVN::Notify is fully subclassable, to easily add new functionality. By default, a list of all the files affected by the commit will be assembled and listed in a single message. An additional option allows diffs to be calculated for the changes and either appended to the message or added as an attachment. The included subclass, SVN::Notify::HTML, allows the messages to be sent in HTML format.


To install this module, type the following:

perl Build.PL

Or, if you don't have Module::Build installed, type the following:
