It is a status message describing that the command is recursively
examining the '.' directory.  The '.' directory is the current
directory and on Unix filesystems is a literal "." entry in the
current directory.  This is the default if none is supplied.

The second run has nothing to do and so doesn't print anything.

v2_fix is modified and so it is commited.

Nothing to do since v2_fix is up to date.  So no action was echo printed.

If you desire cvs to be more quiet about these status messages then
you may specify the -q option.

  cvs -q commit

Often used options may be specified on a in your ~/.cvsrc file.
