    Description

      Default perl script for notifying commits by email should be improved:
      
      Currently the scheme of the content sent by mail is:
      
      Author: {username}
      Date: {date}
      New Revision: {rev number}
      
      Added:
         {file1}
         {file2}
      Removed:
         {file3}
      Modified:
         {file4}
      Log:
      {commit message}
      
      Modified: {file4}
      ===================================================================
      --- {file4}	{date} (rev {rev number})
      +++ {file4}	{date} (rev {rev number})
      {diff contents}
      
      
      List of suggested changes:
      - Log message should be shown before the summary of changes (files added,
      modified, removed).
      - The list of changes should be added, instead of inline, with an attachment, in
      order to be able to:
      a) Delete attachments in your mail client tool in order to reduce disk space usage.
      b) Extract the diff file as a patch that you can commit to other branches if you
      want to.
