Yuk. That means a request/wait/receive mail/save attachment cycle, with the
added complication that there is no browse capability. I've hated mail
request interfaces since the days when my only FTP access was via ftpmail
services :-(

Isn't there something with a nice web-based interface? I know Perforce
( has one, but I don't know what the licensing would be
like (it's free for open-source projects hosted on Linux or some such - I
know Perl uses it for source control), and I don't know if SourceForge would
host it. Is there a decent web-based front end to CVS (one which lets you
browse branches and download individual files or zipped copies of a full
branch, etc, etc)?
