Subject RE: mergeinfo commit mails, possible solution
Date Wed, 17 Nov 2010 14:03:40 GMT
The ASF does not use the vanilla mailer.py script, they are using http://opensource.perlig.de/svnmailer
- and this one does fantastic work regarding this! We just need to change the config files
of this tool and specify a special subtree config for /lucene project folder.

See also the attached mail!
