I am having a problem getting the cvsnt server (on Windows) to expand a
user variable in the commitinfo file.


My cvs command is:


            cvs -s RELEASE=dev_0-1-0 ci file.c


and my commitinfo file has the line:


            DEFAULT script $RELEASE


The variable $RELEASE does not get expanded (expanded to nothing).


Commitinfo does expand ${COMMITID} but no user defined variables.


I am using pserver protocol calling cvsnt server from another (client)
machine on the LAN.


Any ideas?


Thanks, scott
