If you can move from cvs 1.11.x (STABLE) to cvs 1.12.12 (FEATURE), then
you could make use of the "posttag" trigger.
I urge you to look very carefully at the administrative differences
between cvs 1.11.x and cvs 1.12.x releases and do lots of testing before

You are hereby notified that communication to a subscription alias such
as address@hidden is NOT confidential as it is archived by many
different systems and is visible via Google and Yahoo! search engines as
well as others. Because of this, it is not possible to erase all copies
of this message.
If you need to use some kind of disclaimer for Sarbanes-Oxley, I suggest
you get your legal department involved in the real world to come up with
a disclaimer that makes sense when communicating with a public mailing
list. Failing that, I suggest you consider gettting a personal e-mail
address without those restrictions (eg, 'gmail.com' or 'hotmail.com')
and use that for futher communications with address@hidden to avoid
trying to place any restrictions on the dissemination of your e-mail.
