Sounds good. I'll aim for the 00:00/06:00/12:00/18:00 schedule. If
Phil doesn't mind I can add him as a cc on the email so he can just
check that over his morning cornflakes (when I'll either be in bed or
at work depending) and see if he got one or not. Then he'll know if it
was X hours since an email or X hours since the merge failed. Then
decide if he wants to run it manually to catch up or perhaps if
someone does break something and then fix it in the 6 hour window he
can merge it himself?

Once I have it up and running I'll take a look at the patchy
instructions as I'd like to add some finer points (for n00bs like me -
i.e. how NOT to send Graham emails every 2 minutes while you struggle
to get it working :) and confuse Mr Kastrup at the same time ).
