Yes. loginfo gets called for added directories and both commitinfo and
loginfo get called on add/remove changes to the repository. See
See also the contrib/commit_prep & contrib/log_accum example scripts that
bundle commits for multiple directories into a single e-mail.

It is a poor idea to broadcast e-mail to a general list for any open
source project with any kind of propietary license. I urge you to
communicate with your appropriate company representatives to have this
kind of silly statement banned from outgoing e-mail to any @gnu.org
address if at all possible. It may be the case that future postings
may get no response.
At least this disclaimer indicates that it 'may contain' rather than
saying that it 'does contain' or 'is confidential' but it really
should say something about what happens when the message is posted
to a public forum rather than an individual.

Be advised that under the terms of the FSL license, I believe that your
e-mail was erroneously transmitted to a forum that respects the open
rather than the closed exchange of ideas. It is hard to know who the
intended recipient of your message is when it is broadcast to a list.
> Info-cvs mailing list
Be advised that the above URL will contain a copy of your message
disclosing its contents to the general population.
PS: The following information was posted recently by Greg A Woods
concerning the use of disclaimers such as yours... I share it with you
in the spirit of keeping this list open for the exchange of ideas and
--------------- concerning disclaimers ---------------
This e-mail puts you on notice that I will not be bound by your
confidentiality notice and will feel free to review, disclose,
distribute, archive, laugh at, be amused by, poke fun publicly at,
and/or publish anything I get in e-mail, either directly or indirectly,
and whether intended for me or not, without any further notice. If you
don't feel comfortable with that, I suggest that you not send any
e-mail, especially not to me or any mailing list I might subscribe to;
or at least that you use strong digital encryption to ensure that your
e-mail can't be read by anyone other than its intended recipient. There
are many ways to do this, including using such things as PGP, Lotus
Notes, S/Mime, and many other similar systems.
I apologize to you if it was not your decision to add this notice to
your e-mail. However, given the number of places that have legalized
shrink wrap licenses and the similarity of this license to same, I feel
like it is incumbent on me to put you on notice immediately regarding my
rejection of your notice. Please forward it to whoever in your legal
department or management chain you deem as appropriate.
