commitinfo documentation

From: Fred L. Drake, Jr.
Subject: commitinfo documentation
Date: Thu, 14 Nov 2002 11:54:07 -0500

I wrote a script to be called from commitinfo yesterday, and found the
documentation for how the script would be called somewhat lacking.

I'd like to propose the attached patch for the documentation.

 @c FIXME: need example(s) of what "directory within the
 @c repository" means.
+When the command is run, the current directory will be
+temporary directory containing the new versions of any
+files that are being modified.  If a file is being
+removed, there is no copy of the file in the current
+directory.  If a file is being added, there is no
+corresponding ,v file in the repository directory (be
+aware that both the repository directory and the Attic
+directory need to be checked in the repository to
+locate the ,v file).  Note that there is no information
+about the specific commit request being made (branch
+information, commit message, -r option, etc.).
 @cindex DEFAULT in commitinfo
 If the repository name does not match any of the
 regular expressions in this file, the @samp{DEFAULT}
