Now, I like to do C-x 4 a to type useful data and then use C from

Do people have suggestions on cooperating with others in this kind of
scenario?  In a carrot-and-stick (but more carrot than stick) kind of

Your trouble might be NetBeans. If he has mounted the directory where he does his checkout in as a cvs directory, then every now and then Netbeans will do check-ins of files, even if you didn't ask it to. And ofcourse, that will lead to check-ins without a message.

(At least that's our experience) Now we use WinCVS combined with c-x v v. The directory is mounted in Netbeans as a normal directory.

fwiw, the version of WinCVS we use pops up an annoying screen where we can enter a log message.
