You should look up the specs for the script you want to use instead of
assuming that the syntax is the same across all scripts, which it is
Look here:

Some items from these pages:
Since postcommand runs once for a complete cvs session the regexp in
the beginning of the line should not really be used like that. You
cannot be sure that it will match at all. Use DEFAULT or ALL instead.

%s and %m are not supported by the postcommand script.
