Out of curiosity please confirm, the 'commitid' only really exists if you have 
been using CVSNT
since 'commitid' was added as a capability?
i.e. I can't take a normal CVS repo and drop it in under CVSNT and get 
'commitid' correct?

*I* have been _fortunate_ enough that A) all my projects have forced a comment 
at commit time, B)
Appropriately disciplined anyone who did not use a reasonable checkin comment.  
Our biggest problem
is when folks checkin ONE FILE at a time instead of a coherent checkin of the 
tree (with
individualized comments on EACH file) [has me reaching for my LART, by just 
thinking about it again].
So I can see what you are talking about, I have just only seen it polar 
opposite in my environment.
