Comment format for CVS -> Bugzilla comment gateway

Hi there,

I'm working on a loginfo script that will add a comment to Bugzilla
every time a CVS commit is done with a bug number cited. I was wondering
what sort of information people would like to see in the comment. I am
thinking to add:

- A short text explaining a commit was done (should I use a standard
  format like "CVS Checkin:" instead of a line of text?)
- The checkin comment
- author (pity I can't get email, right? or can I..)
- The files touched by the checkins, optionally being links to Bonsai

Anything else? 

Take care,
