Is it possible to add descriptions of what has been changed right

It is often hard to keep fully track of what exactly has been changed
and I think it's not advisable to commit a file or diretory structure
after every slight change.


Info-cvs mailing list

good one :-) I've found that using a bug tracking system, and simply noting down the bugs that have been fixed (or features that have been implemented) reduces the amount of info u have to log when committing.

keeping a small text file open to copy/paste the changes (or log messages) can be done too ;-). But I doubt you'll get something like you want into'd have enough problems trying to discriminate your comments from the real code ('real code' being any of things that you could store in CVS).

You could also run a diff before checking in to refresh your memory as to what you've done in that file.

If you were supposed to understand it, we wouldn't call it 'code'.
