cvs-mailcomit uses /usr/sbin/sendmail while cvs-syncmail uses
"telnet" localhost smtp, iirc.  So switching may work.

However, I originally only wanted to note that you should be able
to install any cvs helper script in the system, e.g. in the CVSROOT
directory, and call that one instead of the system provided one.

However, if cvs-syncmail is *the* system provided solution and it
doesn't work, then it sounds like a bug.  This one's  actually one
that should be easy to solve.  You'd have to open a bug on the
Alioth request tracker, though.



Of course, I didn't mean that, which is why I didn't say it.
