See src/options.h:

 * When committing a permanent change, CVS and RCS make a log entry of
 * who committed the change.  If you are committing the change logged
 * in as "root" (not under "su" or other root-priv giving program),
 * CVS/RCS cannot determine who is actually making the change.
 * As such, by default, CVS disallows changes to be committed by users
 * logged in as "root".  You can disable this option by commenting out
 * the lines below.
