Work on CVS wrappers in 1.10.8?

Work on CVS wrappers in 1.10.8?

Post by Bob Bea » Tue, 14 Mar 2000 04:00:00

I'm looking into getting 'wrappers' to work in CVS 1.10.8+, and for this,
I'm trying to get ahold of people who have been, or are, working on this
in the current CVS tree.

Specifically, I've looked into the code in src/wrapper.c, and noticed
that the -f and -t components of the CVSROOT/cvswrappers file are
disabled, eventhough there is some code in there for these options.

Since I work on NeXTSTEP and OPENSTEP, I would really like to help get
the cvswrappers code working as I need this feature.

If anyone can point me to the people working in the CVS Team on this
issue, I'd really appreciate it.

1. cvs server : cvs co -d ... not working (1.10.5 and 1.10.6)

With the ext method, using rsh, here's what happening :
With a local repository,
cvs co -d . dir
checks out the dir hierarchy in the current repository.

With the same repository accessed by remote shell
cvs co -d . dir
cvs server: existing repository /repository does not match
cvs server: ignoring module dir

Also, if I specify an absolute path to the -d option, it is ok with
repository and gives
cvs [server aborted]: absolute pathname `/users/fimatex/roth/tmp'
for server
with a remote repository.

The cvs version on the server is 1.10.6, is this bug known and fixed in
1.10.7 ? I also wonder if the client version matters while using rsh :
is it
the client that operates remotely on the repository, or the server that
executes remote orders from the client??
