You probably did not get a reply because noone could understand what
you were asking about...

Are you saying that your own called script does not do what you want
then you should address this to the forum dealing with the particular
language in which you have written the script.

If on the other hand you are saying that the CVSNT supplied
information *to* your script does not have the formatting you expect
then this is the place, but you need to submit more clear examples.

For example exactly what is your cvommitinfo script doing, what is the
input data and what is the output you are creating with the
discrepancies you experience.
Have you tested with a really simple script so you can check what is
going on? What happened thta you thought strange?

In my own experience with loginfo, taginfo, notify and postcommand I
have never had an issue with what CVSNT was sending me at all.
