The checked-out tree is on Windows and the cvs repository is on a
Linux box, but where is /var/www ?  That sounds like Linux too.  If
your web server is also your cvs server, just change the
"/u/www/local-docs" in the example to "/var/www/myproject" and you're
done.  The commit on Windows triggers the loginfo on the Linux server,
which triggers the update on the Linux server.

If the web server is another box, you need to make loginfo trigger an
update *from the web server*.  If the web server is Linux (/var/www ?)
the standard solution is ssh, which when properly setup allows someone
on the cvs server to run commands on the web server.  If the web
server is on Windows...  well, I'd install Cygwin
( and still use ssh but that's just me.
