A script that keeps track of your favorite Git/SVN projects?

Hi there,

Has anybody ever written a script that keeps track of your favorite Git
(and SVN) projects? E.g. sends you an e-mail every time a revision has
been made, with details like the summary, time and date, author and code
differences.

I’ve modified a few projects to my liking, so much that any change made
to the original would have to be added manually. I also think it would
be a great way to learn.

I can’t imagine anything better than a neat little Ruby script stacked
inside my crontab. I’m still a rookie though, otherwise I’d have made my
own already.

Maybe you can get some RSS/Atom feeds from these project, I did that
in the past with subtlety [1] for SVN respositories, and I think you
can use the feed generated in the web server that host your git
repositories (did that for Rubinius and some of the github ones).
