Thanks for the pointers...  I've spoken with the guy who had set this up
before, and apparently they used the checkin e-mail to trigger the process
(with appropriate lock-files and a rate limit.  Considering that the
web-site is on a different machine from the CVS repository.

Seems like that would work well.  Something like:

   lockfile -1 -r 10 "$LOCKFILE" 2>/dev/null
   [ "$?" -ne 0 ] && exit 0
   sleep 20
   #  do update here
   rm -f "$LOCKFILE"

 Read the directions, even if you don't follow them.
