I was curious if there was a way to add a hook or something into CVS so that when you commit a text file or into CVS, it will add a certain string at the end of the file?
For example, say something like: "Committed by Joe Schmoe on 03/11/2010"

The usual way to do something like that is CVS keyword expansion: http://cvsbook.red-bean.com/cvsbook.html#Using%20Keyword%20Expansion
A small drawback is, that you'll have the
$ signs in the file, but many people are used to this convention.
