NAME
     cvsmail --	add cvsweb.cgi links to	FreeBSD	commit mail

SYNOPSIS
     cvsmail [-CcdfGgqv] [-u url] [-U url]

DESCRIPTION
     cvsmail can be used from a	procmailrc(5) file to add cvsweb.cgi links to
     FreeBSD commit mail, allowing you to easily view the diffs	for a particu-
     lar commit.

     The following flags are accepted:

     -C	     Print diffs or links to diffs in context diff format, rather than
	     the default unified diff format.

     -c	     Print links to human-readable, coloured diffs, instead of the de-
	     fault plain diffs.

     -d	     Include diffs in the output, as well as links to the diffs.

     -f	     Munge the data so that a line starting with "From"	and a space
	     has a `>' character insterted before it.  This prevents some MUAs
	     from assuming that	line is	the start of a new message if the
	     mailbox is	in traditional mbox format.  It	will also insert a
	     dummy "From" line as the first line of the	message	if the first
	     line read by cvsmail is not already a "From" line.

     -G	     This option causes	the URLs for diffs to be included both after
	     the individual change lines, and before the actual	diff.  This
	     option only has an	effect if both -d and -g are also specified.

     -g	     This option causes	all the	URLs for diffs,	and, if	-d is speci-
	     fied, the diffs themselves, to be included	at the end of the out-
	     put, rather than immediately after	the ``changes''	line for that
	     file.

     -q	     Operate quietly.  This is the default if stderr is	not a termi-
	     nal.

     -v	     Operate more verbosely.  This is the default is stderr is a ter-
	     minal.

     -u	     Specify an	alternate cvsweb.cgi script.  The default is
	     "http://cvsweb.FreeBSD.org/".  Please note	that the argument to
	     this must include the trailing slash.

     -U	     Specify an	additional cvsweb.cgi script, to be used in addition
	     to	the default.  As with the -u flag, the argument	to this	flag
	     must include the trailing slash.

EXAMPLES
     The following procmailrc(5) rule might be used.

	   :0
	   * ^Sender: owner-cvs-all@freebsd.org
	   {
	     :0
	     * X-FreeBSD-CVS-Branch:.*RELENG_4
	     | cvsmail -f $MAILDIR/lists/freebsd-cvs-stable

	     :0
	     * X-FreeBSD-CVS-Branch:.*RELENG_
	     | cvsmail -f $MAILDIR/lists/freebsd-cvs-other

	     :0
	     | cvsmail -f $MAILDIR/lists/freebsd-cvs-all
	   }

     This will separate	your commit mail into separate folders based on	the
     CVS branch	affected.  If you are a	committer, you might prefer a rule
     more like this.

	   :0
	   * ^Sender: owner-cvs-committers@freebsd.org
	   {
	     :0
	     * Subject:.*cvs commit:
	     {
	       :0
	       * X-FreeBSD-CVS-Branch:.*RELENG_4
	       | cvsmail -f $MAILDIR/lists/freebsd-cvs-stable

	       :0
	       * X-FreeBSD-CVS-Branch:.*RELENG_
	       | cvsmail -f $MAILDIR/lists/freebsd-cvs-other

	       :0
	       | cvsmail -f $MAILDIR/lists/freebsd-cvs-all
	     }

	     :0
	     lists/freebsd-committers
	   }
