It does, actually... the full text reads:

# The "commitinfo" file is used to control pre-commit checks.
# The filter on the right is invoked with the repository name.  A list
# of files to check is passed to the standard input of the script.  A
# exit of the filter program will cause the commit to be aborted.
# The first entry on a line is a regular expression which is tested
# against the directory that the change is being committed to, relative
# to the $CVSROOT.  For the first match that is found, then the remainder
# of the line is the name of the filter to run.
# If the repository name does not match any of the regular expressions in
# file, the "DEFAULT" line is used, if it is specified.
# If the name "ALL" appears as a regular expression it is always used
# in addition to the first matching regex or "DEFAULT".
