Low-priority bugs go here. Actually, most every documented bug is "low-priority"--in the sense that if it is documented it means noone has gotten around to fixing it. * "cvs update -ko -p -r REV file" doesn't seem to pay attention to the '-ko', at least in client/server mode. A simple work around is to temporarily change the db file with "cvs admin -ko file", then switch it back to the original modes after the checkout (probably '-kkv'). * "cvs status" has a difference in its output between local and client/server mode. Namely there's a tab character followed by a ctime(3)-style date string at the end of the "Working revision:" field. * commands which don't work in a local working directory should probably ignore any CVS/Root values and revert to using CVSROOT alone. The current use of CVS/Root can be very confusing if you forget you're in a working directory for a remote module -- something that's very easy to do since CVS hides the client operation very well, esp. for commands which fail for this reason. The only clue might be the word "server" in a message such as this: cvs server: cannot find module `patch' - ignored * cvs init may gave a strange error at times: ttyp4:<woods@clapton> $ cvs -d /local/src-CVS init cvs [init aborted]: cannot open CVS/Root: No such file or directory but it seemed to work just the same.... Note that at the time CVSROOT was set to point to a CVS server using the ":server:" option. * If a ~/CVS/Root file exists on the server and you are using rsh to connect to the server, CVS may loose its mind (this was reported in May 1995 and I suspect the symptoms have changed, but I have no particular reason to think the bug is fixed -kingdon, Sep 96). * (Jeff Johnson <email@example.com>) I tried a "cvs status -v" and received the following: ? CVS ? programs/CVS ? tests/CVS cvs server: Examining . =================================================================== File: Install.dec Status: Up-to-date ... I claim that CVS dirs should be ignored. (This reportedly happens if "cvs add CVS" (or "cvs add *") is followed by "cvs status", in client/server mode - CVS 1.9). * On remote checkout, files don't have the right time/date stamps in the CVS/Entries files. Doesn't look like the C/S protocol has any way to send this information along (according to cvsclient.texi). Perhaps we can spiff it up a bit by using the conflict field for the stamp on the checkout/update command. Please note that this really doesn't do very much for us even if we get it done. * Does the function that lists the available modules in the repository belong under the "checkout" function? Perhaps it is more logically grouped with the "history" function or we should create a new "info" function?
