Loginfo is giving you the module name, and commitinfo is giving you
the repository - they're different things.  

The commit_prep and log_accum scripts handle this by passing the
repository $(REPOSITORY) to the log_accum script as a parameter.

This probably won't work if you have a complex modules file - I've not
tried it, though.
