Re: Does pre-commit script with a remote server?

My real issue is as follows:

I want to protect $CVSROOT from being modified since it is NFS mounted.
I'd like to set up a client/server with :pserver: method.
When I tested the :pserver:, I found that editinfo is bypassed and
commitinfo is not executed prior to the interactive cvs log editting. The
only way to make the commitinfo work right is to use -m option, which is not
good enough since users want to edit cvs log interactively with a
pre-defined template.

Any suggestions?
