My automation sends me mail with the diff from yesterday's warnings.
I get a lot of mail from deamons which monitor various log files;
server logs, disk space, builds, qa testing, ping histories etc. etc.  
Reading these has to be very fast or I'll just ignore them.
So I work to assure that the mail only reports changes that actually
require my attention.  The diff removes the line numbers before
hand since otherwise I get mail every single time anybody adds
or removes a line from a file that currently has warnings, call it
"diff drift."  In house I don't need to do that, since we have a "no
warning" rule.
