+# The "verifymsg" file is used to allow verification of logging
+# information. It works best when a template (as specified in the
+# rcsinfo file) is provided for the logging procedure. Given a
+# template with locations for, a bug-id number, a list of people who
+# reviewed the code before it can be checked in, and an external
+# process to catalog the differences that were code reviewed, the
+# following test can be applied to the code:
+# Making sure that the entered bug-id number is correct.
+# Validating that the code that was reviewed is indeed the code being
+# checked in (using the bug-id number or a seperate review
+# number to identify this particular code set.).
+# If any of the above test failed, then the commit would be aborted.
+# Actions such as mailing a copy of the report to each reviewer are
+# better handled by an entry in the loginfo file.
+# One thing that should be noted is the the ALL keyword is not
+# supported. There can be only one entry that matches a given
+# repository.
