I am working on a CVSMailer program to use for sending mail from CVS
when there is a commit (using loginfo) and some other action (using
I have pretty much most of this working now, but I cannot test my
notify handling because I cannot trigger a notify event. If I put a
watch on a file and then edit it or commit a change to it the
notification process will see that I did it myself and will not
trigger. "Don't have to tell a developer what he did himself" is the
rationale behind this.
So I thought that I would force a few fake users into the fileattr
file that gets created whenever a watch is put on a file.
But I don't know the exact format of this file for multiple users...
When I add my watch there will be a line like this:

FIniFileFuncs.pas	_watchers=bosse>edit+unedit+commit

How will the entry look like if users charles and jill also put
watches on the same file?
Is it a space separated list after the = sign or will there be
multiple lines for the same file????

Hope someone is active during the weekend who knows this or can send
an example from a system with several users watching the same file...
