Hi all,

My name is Thomas Singer and I'm the core developer of SmartCVS.

A user reported me, that parsing the output of the log command does not work correctly with GNU CVS >= 1.12.9. I know, there are always user requests (at least in the CVSNT mailing list) to show all dates in local timezone. But I don't fully understand, why the CVS *server* should report the date in local timezone (which needs to be told the CVS server before). The conversion from UTC to the local timezone can be handled very easily at client side.

BTW, I very much would appreciate, if the CVS could produce fully-parsable log output, e.g. by escaping special characters in the commit messages.

Best regards,
Thomas Singer
