The function exists within CVS, and it retrieves the log information from
the file in the repository.

It has nothing to do with loginfo.  The loginfo file is there to
provide processing after commit.

OK, so now log into the server (if it isn't local), fire up your
favorite editor, and look at that file above.  You will find the
"cvs log" info directly in the file.  CVS just copies it out,
as far as I can tell offhand, without changing it in any way
(except to delete parts of it as requested by the options).

release_1), it will show up as something like rather
than the more intuitive 1.1.2.
