You are not specifing a commit comment so CVS prompts you for one.  If
you really would like to commit changes with no description (not
recommended) you should give an empty -m option to the commit.  An empty
-m tells CVS that, yes, you really do want to check in with a blank

Again, this isn't recommended though.  Better to implement some way of
forwarding some kind of description for the commit like: 

cvs co -m"changed X, Y and Z to work better" file.ext
