More CVS questions

Does anyone out there know the answers to these Xorg cvs questions?

1. Whenever I run cvs in anonymous mode, it works fine. But when I
    run it as the user deronj, it does the right thing, but the cvs
    process never terminates. This limits my ability to do automatic
    nightly bringovers from my lg3d branch. Does this problem sound
    familiar to anybody?

2. I've been getting lots of the following messages. What does it mean?
    Should I be concerned about this?

cvs commit: Using deprecated info format strings.  Convert your scripts 
to use
the new argument format and remove '1's from your info file format strings.
Mailing the commit message to xorg-commit at

3. One of the Xorg CVS policy web pages mentioned that I can control
    write access to a branch? How do I go about doing this?

4. What is the default state of write access to branches. Is it
    anybody-can-write unless I do anything?

5. I would like to be notified whenever anybody commits anything into
    my branch. How can I set this up? Is there any way to get notified
    only of commits to my particular branch, or do I need to receive
    all commit notifications and filter them myself?
