I think there's a patch for this available on under project
RCVS.  You'll have to work to use this patch, though, since the patches are
incremental.  If this is the only patch you want, it may be easier to look at
the patch, then reimplement it into your copy of CVS.

Subject:  Interaction between cvs co and edit watches

We are using a CVS pserver model with Linix Server and NT clients.  We are
running CVS v1.10.8.

I have discovered that using cvs co to checkout a new work area removes any
edit markings that may exist on a file.

For example:

cd c:\work\watch_test
cvs co -r mybranch myproj
cd myproj/mymodule
cvs edit myfile
cvs editors
myfile    mberney Fri Feb 16 22:11:28 2001 GMT    mberney

cd c:\work\watch_test2
cvs co -r mybranch myproj
cd myproj/mymodule
cvs editors

As you can see from my simulated transcript here that when I checkout myproj
in a separate work area, the edit markings go away.

Is there any way to prevent this?  Or is there some other solution?

Please reply via email.
