Bug: "cvs co -d <absolute path> ..." does not work


From: Peter Kass
Subject: Bug: "cvs co -d <absolute path> ..." does not work

Hi,

Server: i386 Linux RedHat 7.3, cvs 2.12.10
Client: i386 Windows XP SP1 or SP2, cvs.exe 2.12.11 or 2.12.9 or 2.12.10 or
2.11.2.
CVSROOT=:pserver:address@hidden:/users/000_600/cvs_repository

Priority: not really high

-------------------

I type:

cvs co -l -d G:\temp\workspace .


This works fine on Windows NT/XP with the CVSNT - Client "cvs.exe"
from CVSNT version 2.0.51d and CVSNT version 2.0.58d.

But this works fine on Linux with cvs 1.12.10 ( server and client ).
But this does not work neither with the cvs.exe 1.12.9, nor 1.12.10, nor
1.12.11,
nor 1.11.20 (downloaded from
https://ccvs.cvshome.org/servlets/ProjectDocumentList?folderID=83&expandFold
er=83&folderID=80 ), nor with the Linux client cvs 1.12.10 (of course with a
Unix-path like "cvs co -l -d /tmp/workspace" ).

I found Issue 217 ( https://ccvs.cvshome.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=217 ),
but
this is a joke, is'nt it ?
The bug is not in the documentation, but in the behaviour of the cvs client
!
I cannot see a reason, that one cannot provide an absolute path with
the -d option. Therefore it is clearly a bug.
(Even if it can easily be worked around ...).

P.S.: please do not distribute my Email address on the web.
