Tony, The aim of this option is to reread the log file before the commit is done. Example: I have defined a perl script in verifymsg file: this script reads the log message (the log message file name is passed to the script), checks for presence of keywords (this will prevent the commit from being accepted if some info is not included) but also reformats the log message to a pre-defined format: this results in log messages always being consistent (text width, lowercase/uppercase, ...) The perl script writes back the formated version of the log message back to the passed file. If option RereadLogAfterVerify=always ( or RereadLogAfterVerify=stat) would be defined, CVS would reread the log message and thus store the re-formatted version instead of the log message as sent by the user. I hope this example makes it somewhat clearer. PS: Let's say this is considered an interesting option, how should I suggest it to the CVSNT team?

It's a new option that appeared long after the codebases of cvs & cvsnt split, so I don't know much about it. In particular the manual entry for it seems to have been written in translated klingon... has anyone any experience with this option and can describe what it's trying to achieve? Tony
