Re: How can I convert from anonymous to real user account?

It might be easier to change the Root of your workspace.  There's a Perl
script floating around out there to do that.  I'm not sure where it is, but it
amounts to:

    for dir in `find . -name CVS -prune -print`; do echo
":pserver:<mynewid>" >$dir/Root; done

Please backup b4 using this, but it should be close.

There is not a truth on earth which I fear or would disguise.  But secret
slanders cannot be disarmed, because they are secret.
