Or just use a simple (perl/python/whatever) script that sends a message 
on directly after an update. With CVS it's possible to tell the server 
to run a script after each commit. This script can do just about 
anything, including sending Jabber messages. This would remove the need 
for creating RSS/Atom all together. RSS would just be another layer that 
can introduce problems.
