I can probably do something like that at How about something
more generic -- e.g. a simple tool that asks a remote web service to
notify you when a commit-id is seen in one of the repos?


git lmk for-linus mainline

this does:

- find out the commit-id points at "for-linus"
- send a REST request to

"tree": "mainline",
"commit": "123abc...abc555",
"notify": "(output of $(git config"

We already run a bunch of periodic jobs on repo updates and can run an
additional check-and-fire-an-email automation job.

Would that be a useful alternative? If yes, what would be your preferred
workflow for such tool instead of "git lmk [commit] [tree-moniker]"?
