The way I did it at work was to use the contrib/
script which picks up mails from a script called by CVSROOT/loginfo.
Works like a charm. I modified it to allow appending a commit log to
multiple bugs.

I really don't know which approach is the cleanest. One question,
though: Does the CGI approach attribute commit logs to the correct
person (i.e. not in the bug comment itself, but in the bug comment

I'm in the process of cleaning the scripts up a tad (some other people
want them too). Let me know if they would be of interest.
