Below is an error I get when I try to commit any file after I had edited my loginfo file to contain the following line: ALL $CVSROOT/CVSROOT/ address@hidden $USER %{sVv}
address@hidden:/usr/home/brians/51Release/Oas/CVSROOT$ cvs commit -m "test"
cvs commit: Examining .
Checking in;
/home/cvs/cvs/CVSROOT/,v  <--
new revision: 1.2; previous revision: 1.1
sh: /home/cvs/cvs/CVSROOT/ No such file or directory
cvs server: Rebuilding administrative file database
A,v file exists in the CVSROOT directory, but not a I added a to the repository that was passed on thru this mailing list. I had to edit the following lines in the file:
my $last_file  = "/var/cvs/lastdir";               -------- (What is this variable used for?)
my $summary    = "/var/cvs/summary";      -------- (What is this variable used for?) 
my $smtpserver = "";                  
my $smtpport   = 25;
my $cvs        = "/usr/bin/cvs";
my $cvsroot    = $ENV{CVSROOT}."/";
# remove double trailing slash
$cvsroot =~ s/\/\/$/\//;                                ------ (What does this mean?)
my $cvsusers   = "/home/cvs/cvsroot/CVSROOT/cvsusers";  -------(no cvsusers file existing)
Could you point to a site or maual that could better help me understand email notifications via CVS? Thanks
