Since we already have an internal e-mail notification sent to TeamICS
members (based on TSmtpCli) it would be easy to send another copy to
some mailing list.
How about upgrade that program to add a new entry to a RSS feed, and post
a new Twitter message?
That would of course be nice. But this require a lot of work to create the
software to do that, and then to maintain it in operation. I don't think we
have the resources to do that.
Old mailing list are good, but ther's no assurance the message will arrive
to all users e-mail box.
No more no less that tweet or RSS.
The mailing list is really very reliable so far as is email. Everybody
depends on email today so it has to be reliable anyway.
What would be really interesting is to find someone wanting to write a
program, using ICS components, creating new one if required, which would
serve as a gateway. That program shall use the POP3 component to receive
emails from a given email account somewhere, retrieve messages posted by the
SVN emailer and blash it to tweeter, RSS, FaceBook and LinkedIn. That guy
should also have a server to make the gateway running and have some spare
time to operate it properly.
That would be very nice :-)
