Since I came up with the idea I figured I do my best to throw
something together and see if people find it useful. I made a very
basic page on the wiki for this, this is my first time every using a
wiki so not sure I did it all as I should have. Comments are welcome!
And Matt, currently I setup a filter on my mail that I think will grab
all commits to a branch. This works well enough for now. (sorry about
sending this e-mail to you and not the list first)
