Hi Mark,

Thank you for replying so quickly.

I am sorry, I am new to CVS. We don't really use rcsinfo file. We
basically use a plain CVS functionality and use all the default
settings that come from the CVS distribution.

From the CVS documentation, it looks like rcsinfo file should contain
a rule set. I am not familiar with this file.

Also, how can we make it applied globally to all newly created
projects instead of individually customizing the newline behavior? I
mean, without having to edit the rcsinfo file on every project.

Use the following (unix) commands:

 cvs checkout CVSROOT
 echo > rcstemplate
 cvs add rcstemplate
 echo 'DEFAULT $CVSROOT/CVSROOT/rcstemplate' >> rcsinfo
 echo 'rcstemplate' >> checkoutlist
 cvs commit -m 'Add a default log message template.'
 cd ..
 cvs release -d CVSROOT

Now anyone that does a new cvs checkout of the same repository will get
the appropraite CVS/Template file that has the empty line you want which
will be part of the inital log message they see.
Thanks for your super quick response. That works.
A follow up question. Is there any way that these changes can be made 
permanently for subsequent new creation of repositories so we don't have
to do the customization above?
