That is an ancient version of cvs. You should consider an upgrade to
something newer without the bugs and security holes it has.

You may find doing a 'cvs -Q -n status' command on the files of interest
and parsing the output to be the most 'portable' solution.

Well, first, it would be %{Vvs} for cvs 1.11.x the loginfo file
(the %t is not a supported format string for loginfo).

Although, I suppose if you have local hacks to the cvs sources, you
might have defined %t switch to be the tagname. The %V is the old
version number and %v is the new version number and %s is the filename.

With a ${Vvts} it would try to expand an environment variable and
probably do nothing but expand to '' as an argument to your script.

# You may specify a format string as part of the
# filter.  The string is composed of a `%' followed
# by a single format character, or followed by a set of format
# characters surrounded by `{' and `}' as separators.  The format
# characters are:
#   s = file name
#   V = old version number (pre-checkin)
#   v = new version number (post-checkin)
# For example:
#DEFAULT (echo ""; id; echo %s; date; cat) >> $CVSROOT/CVSROOT/commitlog
# or
#DEFAULT (echo ""; id; echo %{sVv}; date; cat) >> $CVSROOT/CVSROOT/commitlog

        Good luck,
