As Scott suggested, it may be checking for the presence of a CVS
directory in the modules directory - if its there, it may trigger a
check for CVS/RCS strings...

Hi Scott,

I'm using it here via Module::Starter::PBP

I don't see this. I have a .pm file here with neither rcs nor cvs
strings in 
it and perlcritic is silent on the matter.

Do I need to have something else in my file to trigger the check for 
cvs/rcs strings?

Note that I haven't modified the local perlcritic rules here in any way,
(but I will soon ;-) ..
