Remember that ClearCase versions directories, which doesn't translate well
to the existing CVS paradigm.  Unless you never add or remove files, you'll
have to make significant changes to your CVS wrapper.

However, not all is lost.  Cisco has spent a great deal of effort making
ClearCase look like CVS, so if anyone has a buddy over there then maybe
they can help.

I've explained this in the thread enclosed.

It's not my choice to sit between products that talk
CVS and a company that insists on using Clearcase and
I think what I have proposed is actually not a bad

It means that if my company takes on a new tool OR
!DEVELOPER! that knows only CVS, it/they can still be
immediately productive.

Now, before I look at this any further I really need
to know whether all interaction with versioned files
is indeed abstracted out of CVS and into the RCS
component, as has been implied, (in which case my
approach would work) or whether CVS also walks around
the side of RCS and messes with this stuff directly???

Can anyone give me an answer to this - I would really
appreciate it.
