This is a good opportunity to introduce the executable version of my loginfo scripts.

1. Install
on the CVS server

2. Change your system PATH environment variable to include the directory you installed to

3. Edit the globals.xml file in the directory you installed to.  Set the SMTP server and the domain name.  The scripts also use the CVSROOT/users file to map user names to email addresses.  This file consists of lines of the form
   CVS User Name:Email Address

4. Checkout CVSROOT/loginfo, change the contents to:
   DEFAULT dgloginfohtmlemail "%{sVv}" "$USER"
   and check it back in

Note that if you install a new version of the above tar.gz file you should first save your globals.xml file to a safe place.

The executable source is a perl script which is hosted on SourceForge.  Info is at http://devguy.com/pctk.  If you want to use the scripts instead of the executable go to http://www.devguy.com/fp/cfgmgmt/cvs/cvs_admin_nt.htm#loginfo
