The `loginfo' file is used to control where
`cvs commit' log information is 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 a match is found, then
the remainder of the line is a filter program that
should expect log information on its standard input.
The filter program may use one and only one % modifier (a la printf). If `%s' is specified in the filter program, a brief title is included (enclosed in single quotes) showing the modified file names.
If the repository name does not match any of the regular expressions in this file, the `DEFAULT' line is used, if it is specified.
All occurances of the name `ALL' appearing as a regular expression are used in addition to the first matching regular expression or `DEFAULT'.
The first matching regular expression is used.
See section The commit support files, for a description of the syntax of the `loginfo' file.
Note: when CVS is accessing a remote repository, `loginfo' will be run on the remote (i.e., server) side, not the client side (see section Remote repositories).
