Hey, all.

I just wanted to announce Joey Hess' new project mr, which should be of
interest to the group:

(The rest of this message is shamelessly stolen from Joey's site)

The mr(1) command can checkout, update, or perform other actions on a
set of repositories as if they were one combined respository. It
supports any combination of subversion, git, cvs, and bzr repositories,
and support for other revision control systems can easily be added.

It is extremely configurable via simple shell scripting. Some examples
of things it can be configured to do include:

    * Update a repository no more frequently than once every twelve
    * Run an arbitrary command before committing to a repository.
    * When updating a git repository, pull from two different upstreams
      and merge the two together.
