I ended up using cvs rlog, and I just noticed it wasn't using -n, and it appears to work fine. Does cvs rlog try to lock the file for some reason, or is -n just the general rule of thumb for things like these loginfo scripts?

thanks again,

The 'cvs -n log' command would be running on the server with CVSROOT
pointed at the local repository for you. It will work fine. It has
always worked fine. The problem was that cvs locks are still in place
when loginfo is run, so that is why you may only use '-n' options that
do not actually try to create any locks or do anything other than 'read'

As has also been said, you could also use 'cvs -n rlog' if you wish.
