Even if we don't drop the generated files in the repository (which I won't 
really comment on, other than that Java on FreeBSD isn't very stable - which 
matters because daedalus is on FreeBSD - someone may want to try to generate 
the docs on daedalus itself), I think the best overall solution would be to 
alter the CVS mailer script to send ViewCVS URLs to all of the files that 
changed when the entire diff exceeds a certain limit.  Commits that exceed the 
mailing list threshold are dropped and that's not good *ever*.

I imagine some Perl hacker could tweak to do this 
(/home/cvs/CVSROOT/  If not, well, it might be time to rewrite into Python.  =)  -- justin
