This is the fourth iteration submission of git-multimail to Git. The
earlier submissions have all gotten a lot of good feedback, which has
mostly been implemented. This submission differs from v3 in the
* Renames the directory within the Git project from
contrib/hooks/git-multimail/ to contrib/hooks/multimail/. The
"git-" seems redundant within the Git project . I have no strong
feelings either way.
* Includes the latest version of the upstream project. Highlights:
* A change in how git-multimail is configured via Python. I wasn't
happy with the old method; concerns were not separated well
enough. I wanted to get this right before more people start
writing against the internal API. The new version uses mixin
classes, which is a technique that can easily be overdone. But in
this case I was happy with the way that it permitted different
aspects of the configuration to be disentangled quite well. (This
doesn't change how the script is configured externally via "git
config"; that has been stable for quite some time already.)
* Fixes a scalability issue for repos with lots of refs that was
pointed out by Ævar Bjarmason.
* Allows an arbitrary program to be substituted in place of
/usr/sbin/sendmail when using the SendMailer.
* Improvements suggested by Ramkumar Ramachandra's code review
* Various documentation improvements.
* Adds a new file, README.Git, which explains the relationship between
the Git and git-multimail projects, and documents the version of the
upstream project that corresponds to the code being submitted to the
* Adds a notice to contrib/hooks/multimail/post-receive deprecating
that script and pointing users to git-multimail.
The upstream project also now includes better tests. Though I am not
including the tests in the code submitted to the Git project,
obviously the code benefits from them.
 I also got the feeling that Junio prefers the new directory name,
though there is a good chance that I read more into one of his
emails than he intended.
