Re: Unexpected directory-entry in CVS/Entries

What, if I check out test/sub1 and test/sub2 in two different directories and then move the sub2 into the sub1 directory? Shouldn't this produce the same results as with the two different checkouts as shown below?

Hi,

I have a simple project in the repository:

[repository-root]
 + test/
   + sub1/
   | + test1.txt
   + sub2/
     + test2.txt

Now I check out test/sub1 and test/sub2 nested in each other:

address@hidden:~$ mkdir cvstest
address@hidden:~$ cd cvstest
address@hidden:~/cvstest$ cvs-1.12.11 -d :local:/misc/repository checkout -d sub1 test/sub1
cvs-1.12.11 checkout: Updating sub1
U sub1/test1.txt
address@hidden:~/cvstest$ cd sub1
address@hidden:~/cvstest/sub1$ ls -al CVS

As you can see, for some mysterious reason, CVS 1.12.11 creates an entry for sub2 in the parent's CVS/Entries(.Log). This also happens when the second checkout comes from a different repository. When both checkouts come from the same repository, a "cvs update sub2/test2.txt" works, but it fails when both come from a different repository.

What do you think about it? Is this correct behaviour to "link" independent working copied together using the entry? Shouldn't the entries and the CVS/Repository content form a valid hierarchy as well as the file system outside of the CVS-directories?
