This month's question - Spring 2006

Q: Hi Greg,

Is there any way to receive email notifications when
a file is committed to our Subversion repository?

A: Yes, once your repository is configured with it, the svnnotify tool provides a highly-readable HTML-formatted email every time a file is committed.

Click here for an example of what the email messages look like.

Svnnotify sends its notification message to a single email address, so you can easily add an alias on your mail server that delivers to all of your team members. Simply contact us to set up your account with this helpful tool, and start seeing the activity in your repository as it happens.

This is a great way to enable informal peer review and to potentially catch source code problems before they make it further into your release process.

Ask the Source is a regular feature of the email newsletter,
