A standard linux distribution is likely to be using the CVS package that
comes out of the version. There is no postcommit feature for
the version of CVS as there is in the CVSNT version.

If you install a server, then I expect you would find it
called "postcommit" ... I am given to understand that the
server will work fine on standard linux distributions.

Otherwise, you will need to take care to use tricks to delay the
invocation of a command that will update your website after the
currently executing cvs commit finally unlocks all of the cvs locks it
has created.

As of cvs 1.12.10, there will be a few more script hooks in the version of CVS (postadmin, posttag and postwatch), but I
believe that loginfo is still the last in the chain for a commit...
