If you want to avoid forking your version of CVS, a line like the
following in your CVSROOT/rcsinfo file should achieve the same effect:


Where blankline is a file with only the single "\n" in it which you have
committed to CVSROOT and added to CVSROOT/checkoutlist.

At one time you would have had to have everyone release their workspaces
and check them out again, but I believe Mark Baushke fixed that c.
1.12.1.  Now your users should just need to run a single update in their
workspaces to acquire the new log templates.

Please read the manual sections on rcsinfo and checkoutlist before you
ask any further questions about these files.
