Being the author of CVSMailer I an curious to know how you set
CVSMailer up for handling the JIRA issue links?
What did you put into the ini file for this and how do you enter the
bugid in the commit messages?

I originally constructed the parsing for issue numbers for the Roundup
issue tracker, but tried to make it as general as possible to enable
other systems as well. I have never before heard about JIRA (have not
looked either), but if that is popular I could add some instructions
for that to the CVSMailer website as well...
