[Rubygems-developers] Commit mailing list for easy progress watching

could anybody from RubyGems developers setup mailing list when one could
subscribe for watching RubyGems commits. It is possible on rubyforge and
is much more convenient then going through 'svn log' and/or 'svn di'.
It's described in detail here:
(SVN section below)
Or it is already set up anywhere else and already possible to watch
commits? We already did so for debug-commons and ruby-debug project so
I'm 'attaching' few-steps instruction for quick setup without the need
to read the above document.
Just s/joe/<your-rubyforge-account> in sftp login.
Would be great to be able to watch the progress easily for outside world
and mainly I believe for RubyGems developers as well.
First you need to set up the commit mailing list, e.g.
rubygems-commits at rubyforge.org. It is easily doable through admin
interface in rubygems project:
1) be logged in, go to the rubygems's Admin page
2) Mail Admin -> Add Mailing List
Then after the mailing list is confirmed by rubyforge admins (usually
pretty quickly), all what is needed is to copy-paste the post-commit
hook below into your rubyforge hooks directory.
Save the attachment e.g. to the ~/tmp directory and do something like:
$ cd ~/tmp
$ sftp joe at rubyforge.org:/var/svn/rubygems/hooks
sftp> put post-commit
sftp> chmod 775 post-commit
That should be all.
svnnotify --repos-path "$REPOS" --revision "$REV" \
--svnlook /usr/local/bin/svnlook \
--to rubygems-commits at rubyforge.org --from nobody at rubyforge.org \
