Re: Remaining TODOs to finish migration from CVS to Git

Yet another simple method that _anyone_ can use to receive email
notification directly to _their_ _own_ email address is to use github's
"watch" feature. Log in to github, press the "watch" button (with the
eye icon) on the upper right of a repository of interest, and Github
will send email notifications for all of that repository's events to the
email address associated with your github account.
