Heh. But it sure does sound like it could be automated! Automation
is the key to longevity.

    In any case, it's a good experiment and it does show the potential
    for integrating some sort of commit log automation filter to pull
    out commits to branches and throw them onto a web page automatically.

It can definitely be done with an awk and a minimal shell script. Similar to the way I used to generate FreeBSD-4 MFC lists, which I did my regex'ing the commit mail archive. I will see if I can do something for branch commits and put it up on leaf.

Kind regards,
