1Low-priority bugs go here. Actually, most every documented bug is 2"low-priority"--in the sense that if it is documented it means noone 3has gotten around to fixing it. 4 5 6* "cvs update -ko -p -r REV file" doesn't seem to pay attention to the 7 '-ko', at least in client/server mode. A simple work around is to 8 temporarily change the db file with "cvs admin -ko file", then switch 9 it back to the original modes after the checkout (probably '-kkv'). 10 11* "cvs status" has a difference in its output between local and 12 client/server mode. Namely there's a tab character followed by a 13 ctime(3)-style date string at the end of the "Working revision:" 14 field. 15 16* commands which don't work in a local working directory should probably 17 ignore any CVS/Root values and revert to using CVSROOT alone. The 18 current use of CVS/Root can be very confusing if you forget you're in 19 a working directory for a remote module -- something that's very easy 20 to do since CVS hides the client operation very well, esp. for 21 commands which fail for this reason. The only clue might be the word 22 "server" in a message such as this: 23 cvs server: cannot find module `patch' - ignored 24 25* cvs init may gave a strange error at times: 26 ttyp4:<woods@clapton> $ cvs -d /local/src-CVS init 27 cvs [init aborted]: cannot open CVS/Root: No such file or directory 28 but it seemed to work just the same.... Note that at the time CVSROOT 29 was set to point to a CVS server using the ":server:" option. 30 31* If a ~/CVS/Root file exists on the server and you are using rsh to 32connect to the server, CVS may loose its mind (this was reported in 33May 1995 and I suspect the symptoms have changed, but I have no 34particular reason to think the bug is fixed -kingdon, Sep 96). 35 36* (Jeff Johnson <firstname.lastname@example.org>) 37 I tried a "cvs status -v" and received the following: 38 39 ? CVS 40 ? programs/CVS 41 ? tests/CVS 42 cvs server: Examining . 43 =================================================================== 44 File: Install.dec Status: Up-to-date 45 ... 46 47 I claim that CVS dirs should be ignored. 48 (This reportedly happens if "cvs add CVS" (or "cvs add *") 49 is followed by "cvs status", in client/server mode - CVS 1.9). 50 51* On remote checkout, files don't have the right time/date stamps in 52 the CVS/Entries files. Doesn't look like the C/S protocol has any 53 way to send this information along (according to cvsclient.texi). 54 Perhaps we can spiff it up a bit by using the conflict field for the 55 stamp on the checkout/update command. Please note that this really 56 doesn't do very much for us even if we get it done. 57 58* Does the function that lists the available modules in the repository 59 belong under the "checkout" function? Perhaps it is more logically 60 grouped with the "history" function or we should create a new "info" 61 function?
