I have a question related to CVS update. Assume that a repository, say A, exists. There are 5 engineers who have access to this repository. Now, one of these engineers changes one of the files in repository or creates a new directory in the repository. Is there a way to have emails sent automatically to all these 5 engineers whenever a change is made, including information on the type ofchange? Normally, one would have to always do a CVS update on the local copy of the repository to know if some files have been modified.

I don't recall all the details of how, but the answer is yes.
The manual has these pages on the subject:
"Informing others about commits"
IIRC there is even an fairly extinctive example Loginfo script with the CVS source, which your distribution may have included.
