Ok, if I use the edit command with the -b option then an entry is made
into the Entries.Extra file.  But if you use commit -B <bugid> then you
don't get an entry.  So every thing is written on the client side until
the commit is finished and then the bugid is written to the repository
information I think. 

So to make this work, I need to have a client side script (macro for
winCVS) that parses the entries.extra file and then runs the checks.  Is
there anyway to implement on the server side?  Is there a winCVS or
tortoise client that has this out of the box?
