Hello, I think I might have found a bug in cvs (currently I am using the version 1.11).
The problem occurs when I try to make an export of a module which has one or more subdirectories and if the file CVSROOT/rcsinfo contains a line like "DEFAULT /myRepository/CVSROOT/commit.msg". In that case an export command like cvs export -D 2002-04-25 cvs-test stops with the following error message: cvs export: Updating cvs-test U cvs-test/file1 U cvs-test/file2 U cvs-test/file3 cvs [export aborted]: cannot write <CVS/Template file>: No such file or directory All the files in the top-level directory gets exported just fine, but when it comes to enter a subdirectory, it seems that cvs tries to write the CVS/Template file which will fail because the CVS admin-directory isn't there (which, of course, is normal, since I do an export). If I delete the above mentioned line in CVSROOT/rcsinfo, the export works pretty smooth, no problems at all. If I change it to, let's say, "cvs-test /myRepository/CVSROOT/commit.msg" then only the module cvs-test can't be exported, all others will. Modules without any subdirectories are always being exported without errors, regardless of the contents of CVSROOT/rcsinfo. If I have left out any details that might be of interest for you, please feel free to contact me. regards Michael Cohrs ===================================================== Michael Cohrs yasc Informatik GmbH 38114 Braunschweig Telefon : 0531 / 250 39 39 Durchwahl : 0531 / 250 64 33 Fax : 0531 / 250 39 41 EMail : [EMAIL PROTECTED] Web : http://www.yasc.de ===================================================== _______________________________________________ Bug-cvs mailing list [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://mail.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/bug-cvs
