[patch] alist option for add-log-mailing-address

From: Bradley M. Kuhn
Subject: [patch] alist option for add-log-mailing-address
Date: Wed, 28 Mar 2007 13:47:31 -0400
User-agent: Gnus/5.110006 (No Gnus v0.6) Emacs/22.0.91 (gnu/linux)

Attached please find a patch that adds a feature to add-log.el.  I often
want to chose which email address I use for a changelog entry based on
what directory I am working in.

I've added a feature allowing the add-log-mailing-address to be an alist,
which is a list of regular expressions and addresses to use for those
regular expressions.

The patch is cvs diff'ed against the CVS head.

It's been many many years since I gave a patch to Emacs, so I don't know
the proper procedure these days, I hope sending it to this address is

BTW, I am (obviously) quite familiar with FSF's copyright assignment
process, but I don't know the Emacs' team particular procedure for when
they want copyright assignments for a given patch.  I am of course willing
to assign past and future changes and to get an employer disclaimer.  Let
me know if I should contact <address@hidden> directly about that.

Finally, let me know if you like the patch or would like me to rewrite it
a bit differently!
