I mean the commit log.

Sorry, when I was snipping, I failed to snip the debug message (to
stderr) from my $EDITOR.

I am my administrator.  They're as default provided by cvs, but I
don't think they're relevant, because they decide whether the server
allows the commit or not, but it was a network failure that forced the
abort.  In other cases of failure, the cvs client will leave the
temporary file lying around, so you can fix the problem, reload the
temporary file, and recommit, but in this case, the temporary file was
deleted despite the failure, so I wasn't able to reload the log when I
fixed the network problem.
