Add the line 'UseNewInfoFmtStrings=yes' to CVSROOT/config


DEFAULT Mail -s "%p %s" address@hidden

and you should get something that approximates your old behavior.
Without accidentally trying to send e-mail to e-mail addresses you did
not expect when the bare %s would otherwise be sent as multiple
arguments and only the first would be in the subject line.

However, you may wish to consider something like:

DEFAULT Mail -s "%p %{sVv}" address@hidden

or you could write a wrapper script that generates the subject line
that you desire and is passed the %p and %{sVv} arguments separately.
