Ah, that's easy.  Thanks.

cvs also writes this to stderr:

cvs server: Updating .
cvs server: Updating bin
cvs server: Updating lib

Can that be suppressed?  I'd like my cron job to be quiet unless
there's a problem and then mail me stderr output.

I guess the solution is to capture stderr and then if cvs returns
non-zero exit status cat that file and let cron mail it to me.

This is cvs on SourceForge.  Not sure how much I can modify there.
But I'll take a look.

Thanks for the help!
