The script that checks the data *before* commit is called
The usage is described in the Cederquist manual and in short form in
the script file put there on initialization. THis scriptfile is only
containing commented lines, you have to check out CVSROOT, then edit
the commitinfo script file then commit it right back.
The second item (space delimited) on the script line is the program
you want to run.
This program should do your checking and if it detects an error it can
print a message to standard out (will be visible to the user doing the
commit) and exit with an exit code > 0. This causes cvs to abort the
commit altogether.
