See here for some info http://www.cvsnt.org/manual/html/Log-keyword.html

Even if everything else in the file merges fine, the pack of log lines may
create an unnecessary conflict that has to be fixed manually. Which then
links back to the issue with the log entries in the file being "fixed"
manually, without updating their original data in the cvsnt commit
