cvs checkout CVSROOT/notify
edit notify
cvs commit

Because the notify file is one of the CVS special administrative files,
CVS will commit to the ,v form, and also create a plain-text form in

Do not edit the plain-text form in CVSROOT, you have CVS installed so
you may as well get revision control on the administrative files.

(Exception: don't checkout CVSROOT/passwd)

All of this is explained in the 'Administrative Files' node of info cvs.
