May I ask how you are using it, specifically?

We've got a custom-built defect tracking system, and on our various
CVS servers, the checkin prog talks to the defect database. It's done
to create associations between all changed files and a particular defect,
and also as a way of enforcing that engineers specify which defect a checkin is intended to fix. It's not the most brilliant thing in the world, and there are obvious ways for a malicious user to defeat it,
but that's what we are doing with it.

Are you using about programs specified in CVSROOT/commitinfo and CVSROOT/loginfo or are you using programs specified using the `-i' and `-u' modules options in the CVSROOT/modules file?
