Using a cvs commitinfo script, you would be able to notify people when 
a file gets commited. See 

Without using "cvs edit", I don't know of a way to initiate email when 
people edit a file locally in their own workspace.

Forgive me, I'm new!

Does anyone have a detailed description of how to be notified via 
email WITHOUT using CVS Watch On?  Here's what I want to accomplish.  
I want people to be notified when ANY of a whole group of files 
is "edit"ed "unedit"ed "commit"ed etc.  But we don't want the 
developers to have to use the "cvs edit" command to edit the files.  
Are any of these things possible?  Also, I'd need pretty specific 
instructions since I'm still wet behind the ears!  Thanks!


PS. What I've done so far.  Added ALL mail %s -s "CVS notification" 
to the notify file

Created "users" file with "name:emailaddress" for all users.
