Hi achint,

Search for 'update output' in the cvs info document for the complete
story; here's a partial snippet:

    A.20.2 update output

    `update' and `checkout' keep you informed of their progress by printing
    a line for each file, preceded by one character indicating the status
    of the file:

    `U FILE'
         The file was brought up to date with respect to the repository.
         This is done for any file that exists in the repository but not in
         your working directory, and for files that you haven't changed but
         are not the most recent versions available in the repository.

    `P FILE'
         Like `U', but the CVS server sends a patch instead of an entire
         file.  This accomplishes the same thing as `U' using less

Other values you may see include 'A', 'R', 'M' (as you noted above),
'C', and '?'. All of them are documented in the info file.
