Do you mean having a link for newly added files in the commit message?  I
did take a look at doing this.  There's a subroutine in
CVSROOT/ that can be brought over from FreeBSD pretty easily,
since we only have a stub function for it right now.  However, that
subroutine is dependent on a whole pile of changes that we don't have, so
it's a bit more work.

I've been hesitant to do it because of the large number of changes, since
I didn't want to be the one to scramble commits for everyone in the
process.  The best thing would to set up a CVS testbed to add changes, but
that draws out the whole thing longer.

So, the shorter answer is yes, it can be done, but it's pretty far down my
list.  Someone else with a fair knowledge of CVS and Perl could get it
