Injecting CVS commits to Splunk index

Is there a technique to insert CVS commit logs to a Splunk Index. By default a CVS log isn't a time series file as it has each file managed opening a record and than is followed by the individual commits.

Oh wow, I read this as CSV until I saw your example...

With some of my Git repos I log on repo push (which is effectively a commit on the master repo) with the 'post-update' hook. I haven't looked at CVS for years, but if I recall correctly, it has a hook mechanism that you could use similarly. I use logger which logs to syslog, so I only use the first line of the commit message, which by convention in the Git world is a summary or subject. If you want to index the whole commit message, you'll probably need to use a Splunk forwarder.

Here it is in the cvsbook.

I guess I don't know what a CVS log actually looks like, but it seems to me like each file has its own time-series log?
