Yup, I'm sorry, it was stupid. Is there a way to turn of mail notifications? 
Of course I tried cvs ci first, then after one hour of waiting it failed.

I mean this whole thing would be something trivial (having read this 
'oure' 20 times or so I thought maybe I change it, even if it doesn't
matter really, the specs will look neater). Then it showed that 
the commit list instead helpping turns enemy if you change more files. 
I think these small changes should not be noticed, they don't even merit a
changelog entry! I would like to be able to specify 
cvs ci "[no-commit-list] some tiny changes noone cares about" to
avoid sending mail to the list. Is it possible?
