Hi All,

I've been watching the MLs for a while now and want to maybe try my
hand at improving MythTV or one of the plugins. One problem is that
the postings that is automatically generated from CVS is not very
helpful. Here is an example of what I see in my email client:

The following is what I see from another opensource project (Blender)

What I like here is that the subject from posting to posting differs
which does not make every posting appear on a single thread as it does
for mythtv-commits. Also there is a direct link to the diff for every
file changed to ViewCVS which is very nice to review what has been

I assume that it is only a setting of CVS or ViewCVS running on the
server. Is it possible to change this?

Thanks and Cheers,
