I'm beating my head against a wall here.  I've followed the 
directions as near to the letter as possible in "C.7.2 Keeping a 
checked out copy", and it's simply not doing anything.  My steps are 
as follows (I'm clearly missing something, I just don't know what it 

1.)  `cvs -v`
Concurrent Versions System (CVS) 1.11 (client/server)
2.) `cd;cvs checkout CVSROOT`
3.) `vi CVSROOT/loginfo` and add following all on one line:

     ^Reckoning (echo "Updating Apache Sources"; date; cat; (sleep 2; 
cd /www/perl_lib; cvs -q update -d) &) >> $CVSROOT/CVSROOT/updatelog 

4.) `cvs commit -m "Added line to allow auto updating of document 
Checking in CVSROOT/loginfo;
/usr/cvsroot/CVSROOT/loginfo,v  <--  loginfo
new revision: 1.4; previous revision: 1.3
cvs commit: Rebuilding administrative file database
5.) `vi Reckoning/`
6.) `commit Reckoning`
7.) Watch as repository is updated just fine, but document root is 
not even touched... 

The phrase "Updating Apache Sources" never even shows up... it's like 
it's completely skipping the loginfo file, or ignoring my changes....

Any help would be appreciated... what am I missing here?
