Hey Folks,

    Yesterday I pushed tags to the oss.sgi.com xfs git repository and forgot to
    disable the post-receive hook which generates email to the list at commit
    time.  You probably saw the resulting mailbomb.  I'm sorry about that.  In
    order to make sure it doesn't happen again next time, I have applied the
    following patch to our post-receive hook:


--- post-receive-email.xfs      2009-01-16 01:05:09.000000000 -0600
+++ post-receive-email.xfs.tags_disabled        2012-04-11 10:39:30.542537604

    I've tested it out and it seems to have the desired effect.  So... just a
    heads up, you won't be receiving mail for new tags in the xfs git repo on
    oss.sgi.com.

Regards,
Ben
