IIRC, edit keeps track of edits on a per file basis.  I think many things
would have to change for it to track edits sn a per branch basis (eg What
if the branch gets redefined?  Some users would care about other branches.
There might be others.)


I seem to have encountered an oddity in CVS and I'm not sure whether this
was an oversight on the part of CVS, or me :) ?

Let's assume that you have a file foo.c, with a branch of Branch1.

Now, say that a user has foo.c checked out in their workspace on Branch1
(cvs update -r Branch1 foo.c) and then edits it (cvs edit foo.c).

Have a second user get the mainline version of foo.c (cvs update -A foo.c),
and then runs the Editors list on it (cvs editors foo.c).

Now does it make sense that the second user will see the 'edit' status of
the first user even though the first user did the edit on the branch, and
not on the mainline?
