But, somewhere above, it says:

"If you have several sub-products for which you want different checkin lists,
you can change the "DEFAULT" label to match the subtree that you want to go
to each list, with a separate line for each distinct prefix. For example, if
your project includes the products "one" and "two", you could use the
CVSROOT $CVSROOT/CVSROOT/syncmail %{sVv} you_at_someplace.else

one/ $CVSROOT/CVSROOT/syncmail %{sVv} myproject-one-cvs_at_[hidden]
two/ $CVSROOT/CVSROOT/syncmail %{sVv} myproject-two-cvs_at_[hidden]"
