Agreed that this sound like a "lame" strategy, but aren't this what import is supposed solve ?

Think I read about this in the CVS manual a while ago.

Why do you have the source repository in Indian when (it sounds like) all work
is being done in the US?

If some work is being done in India, are you able to give the US developers rsh
or ssh access to the CVS server?  If not, have you looked at using pserver to
give them access?

Your process sounds broken in that, assuming work is geographically dispersed,
you chance overwriting changes -- it wouldn't matter whether you're ftp'ing or
rsync'ing or whatever.  The CVS way to get around this is to have one and only
one repository.

Hi all!

  I am new to CVS and the UNIX environment. We are currently operating from
2 locations - India and US. The latest checked out build in the US office is
ftpied to us in India. We at our end are required to put it in CVS and keep
on updating it with the new builds received.

  We have put the first build into CVS. How can we update this build with
the next one received? Do we have to first checkout the first build
somewhere at our end and then update it? Please let me know the whole
procedure for this.

  Thanks in advance.
