#93 closed defect (fixed)

The name of the sender of a mapguide-commits email notification should be the name of a commiter.

We used to see the name of the sender/commiter of a mapguide-commits email notification (in stead of the mapguide-commits mail list) from the email viewing pane. We lost this feature after switching to It is hard to keep track of who did what since one may have a followup later.

Is the following not typical of the contents of a commit message on the commits list?

This message includes the userid of the commiter in the Author field within the message. While it might arguably be a bit nicer to have this information in from field, I find it hard to imagine it is all that important. However, if you like, I can dig up the script used to generate the messages and you can look into modifying it to do what you want.

It would be better to have the userid of the commiter/revision number/description of the change visible from the From and Subject fields because they could be quickly found when sorted. If these information are included within the message, then a text search will be required and this is painful.

If someone from MapGuide is still interested in this, then they will need to step up. As it is, this would require additional coding: when the commit is made, there is no way to know the email address of the user, and the standard SVN post-commit hooks do not handle updating the email address of the sender this way.

I'm closing this ticket barring someone stepping up with code they'd like to use for this.
