Doug's description of using a Dart dashboard to fulfill Beman's request
covered many features. There is another feature that would provide an
email solution as well.

Dart supports a "Continuous" build model. A Dart client machine
configured this way will keep an up-to-date build incrementally whenever
changes to CVS are committed. When an error occurs, email is sent to any
author who checked in changes since the previous build (there is a mapping
from cvs username to email address). Authors will be notified of errors
resulting from their changes within a few minutes.
