OK, we need to narrow down the problem - is the script executing and
failing to send the mail, or is the script not executing at all?

Check to see if your $tempfile gets created (by the way, you will have
problems if two people trigger the script simultaneously - make sure the
script generates a unique file name each time it runs). If it isn't
created, then the script isn't running. One possibility for that might
be a previous line in loginfo which matches the regex - remember that
CVS will stop at the first match that it finds. For example, if you have:

projects some_script
projects/drivers some_other_script

then the second script will never get executed.

If the script is firing, but not sending the email, I'll have to let
someone else take over, since I'm not an expert at UNIX shell programming.
