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.
