Thank you very much for your answers guys.
I think you are right, on the one hand is useful to have CVS verify that you
are not committing accidentally by forcing to write a comment, and on the
other hand it's quite a big "human" issue to "force" the users to write
I will try to implement the verifymsg solution and also to think in some
other way to convince my colleagues to write a meaningful comment - Maybe
the baseball bat is not a bad idea after all ;).
Thank you again

I sympathize with you, but there's no useful solution that you can _impose_
on your users. They aren't "forgetting" to enter commit comments. The
dialog pops up everytime, so they have to deliberately dismiss it. If they
see no reason to write a comment, then they aren't going to do it. If they
are forced to write _something_, they'll write garbage.
You are going to have to change their attitude, not their software settings.
