The error is only with the emailed commit notification (sends out a message to the ‘vxl-commit’ mailing list whenever anyone does a commit: some people like to keep an eye on what is going on).  It looks like the smtp server at sourceforge is broken: this just means that the emails are not being sent out, but commits are still working just fine.

Subject: [Vxl-maintainers] Error in vxl cvs checkin

 

I observed an Email launch error when checking in the Brown University sources. Looks like a server is down? For a typical case:

 

$ cvs commit -m "Added a Brown University Build Option" CMakeLists.txt

Checking in CMakeLists.txt;

/cvsroot/vxl/vxl/CMakeLists.txt,v  <--  CMakeLists.txt

new revision: 1.45; previous revision: 1.44
