If you mean that you want to stop a developer from taking an old copy of a file
and checking
it in over the top of the current version of the file, there is a set of scripts
in contrib directory that
will facilitate this.  They will require you to have $Id$ markers at the top of
every file though, and
it would still be possible for developers to fool the scripts, just not easy.

                                            Federal Record Status Not Determined

Hi Folks,

Is there anyway to disable the automatic merge on checkin under CVS?
I.e. to force that if a developer tries to checkin a file from a working
copy that is outdated - they get an error message?

I can see that if you admin files with the -m option, it will be disabled,
but this requires some overhead.  I was just wondering if I was missing an
easier configuration option.

Thanks much,
