Since you have your own CVS server, we can be a little more 
flexible.  Here's what I would recommend.

Add the following to CVSROOT/loginfo:
ALL     /usr/bin/cvs-log     $CVSROOT/CVSROOT/commitlog $USER "%{sVv}"

Create a /usr/bin/cvs-log that is executable by the cvs user. (chmod 755 
would do it):

(echo "----------------------------------------------";
  echo -n $2"  ";
  cat) | tee $1 | /usr/bin/Mail -s "[sword-cvs] $3" sword-cvs@crosswire.org

At that point, your commit logs will be archived in the CVSROOT/commitlog 
file, and they would be e-mailed to the sword-cvs@crosswire.org 
address.  Here is what a sample e-mail looks like:

Subject: [sword-cvs] 'directory/subdirectory filename.c,1.7,1.8'

My e-mail address is danb@cyclonecomputers.com (or this address) if you 
would like to contact me privately for more setup help.  But I'll post this 
e-mail here incase someone else might find this useful.
