+# The "commitinfo" file is used to control pre-commit checks.
+# The filter on the right is invoked with the repository and a list
+# of files to check. A non-zero exit of the filter program will
+# cause the commit to be aborted.
+# The first entry on a line is a regular expression which is tested
+# against the directory that the change is being committed to, relative
+# to the $CVSROOT. For the first match that is found, then the remainder
+# of the line is the name of the filter to run.
+# If the repository name does not match any of the regular expressions in this
+# file, the "DEFAULT" line is used, if it is specified.
+# If the name "ALL" appears as a regular expression it is always used
+# in addition to the first matching regex or "DEFAULT".
+# Set this to "no" if pserver shouldn't check system users/passwords
+# Set `PreservePermissions' to `yes' to save file status information
+# in the repository.
+# Set `TopLevelAdmin' to `yes' to create a CVS directory at the top
+# level of the new working directory when using the `cvs checkout'
+# This file affects handling of files based on their names.
+# The -t/-f options allow one to treat directories of files
+# as a single file, or to transform a file in other ways on
+# its way in and out of CVS.
+# The -m option specifies whether CVS attempts to merge files.
+# The -k option specifies keyword expansion (e.g. -kb for binary).
+# Format of wrapper file ($CVSROOT/CVSROOT/cvswrappers or .cvswrappers)
+# wildcard [option value][option value]...
+# where option is one of
+# -f from cvs filter value: path to filter
+# -t to cvs filter value: path to filter
+# -m update methodology value: MERGE or COPY
+# -k expansion mode value: b, o, kkv, &c
+# and value is a single-quote delimited value.
+# For example:
+#*.gif -k 'b'
+# The "editinfo" file is used to allow verification of logging
+# information. It works best when a template (as specified in the
+# rcsinfo file) is provided for the logging procedure. Given a
+# template with locations for, a bug-id number, a list of people who
+# reviewed the code before it can be checked in, and an external
+# process to catalog the differences that were code reviewed, the
+# following test can be applied to the code:
+# Making sure that the entered bug-id number is correct.
+# Validating that the code that was reviewed is indeed the code being
+# checked in (using the bug-id number or a seperate review
+# number to identify this particular code set.).
+# If any of the above test failed, then the commit would be aborted.
+# Actions such as mailing a copy of the report to each reviewer are
+# better handled by an entry in the loginfo file.
+# One thing that should be noted is the the ALL keyword is not
+# supported. There can be only one entry that matches a given
+# Three different line formats are valid:
+# key -a aliases...
+# key [options] directory
+# key [options] directory files...
+# Where "options" are composed of:
+# -i prog Run "prog" on "cvs commit" from top-level of module.
+# -o prog Run "prog" on "cvs checkout" of module.
+# -e prog Run "prog" on "cvs export" of module.
+# -t prog Run "prog" on "cvs rtag" of module.
+# -u prog Run "prog" on "cvs update" of module.
+# -d dir Place module in directory "dir" instead of module name.
+# -l Top-level directory only -- do not recurse.
+# NOTE: If you change any of the "Run" options above, you'll have to
+# release and re-checkout any working directories of these modules.
+# And "directory" is a path to a directory relative to $CVSROOT.
+# The "-a" option specifies an alias. An alias is interpreted as if
+# everything on the right of the "-a" had been typed on the command line.
+# You can encode a module within a module by using the special '&'
+# character to interpose another module into the current module. This
+# can be useful for creating a module that consists of many directories
+# spread out over the entire source repository.
+# The "notify" file controls where notifications from watches set by
+# "cvs watch add" or "cvs edit" are sent. The first entry on a line is
+# a regular expression which is tested against the directory that the
+# change is being made to, relative to the $CVSROOT. If it matches,
+# then the remainder of the line is a filter program that should contain
+# one occurrence of %s for the user to notify, and information on its
+# standard input.
+# "ALL" or "DEFAULT" can be used in place of the regular expression.
+#ALL mail %s -s "CVS notification"
+# The "rcsinfo" file is used to control templates with which the editor
+# is invoked on commit and import.
+# against the directory that the change is being made to, relative to the
+# $CVSROOT. For the first match that is found, then the remainder of the
+# line is the name of the file that contains the template.
+# The "taginfo" file is used to control pre-tag checks.
+# The filter on the right is invoked with the following arguments:
+# $1 -- tagname
+# $2 -- operation "add" for tag, "mov" for tag -F, and "del" for tag -d
+# $3 -- repository
+# $4-> file revision [file revision ...]
+# A non-zero exit of the filter program will cause the tag to be aborted.
+# The "verifymsg" file is used to allow verification of logging
