When you do a 'cvs add' command, you may specifiy a 'message' There
are book-keeping place holders that are created when you do a 

  cvs add -m "my message" foo

command. The CVS/foo,t file will come into existence and will contain
the text "my message". This text is used to in the 'description' of
the added file. If you later do a 

    cvs commit foo
    cvs log foo

you will see the 'my message' text under the 'description:' keyword.
If no -m "my message" argument is used, the foo,t file will be of zero

For more detailed information like this, it is wise to read the sources.
Look at the files src/add.c src/commit.c src/cvs.h src/remove.c to find
the CVSEXT_LOG macro and how it is used.
