Checkouts, updates, the whole bit.  We're running the Helix Community
(https://www.helixcommunity.org), which includes code that we've open
sourced, and is central to our day-to-day business.  As such, we need to
be as meticulous with the logfiles as other websites are with their web
logs (there are whole businesses built around weblog analysis).

That's an interesting possibility.  We'll have to look into that with
CollabNet.  There's some testing that we can do locally as well.  One
question, though: does cvs -l suppress filtering through loginfo?  I
suppose we'll find that out from testing, but if you know for sure one
way or another, that may save us some time.
