But if were to use my own signing keys, I would need to rebuild/resign everything; I wouldn't be able to just modify something in cvs.exe and redeploy it alone. >> Is there a way to disable signature validation? > > I think it is #ifdef'd in CVSAPI - just add the correct pre-processor > define and it wont be compiled in. I tried doing that and it didn't work; it would just hang. Well, not entirely true. I didn't change the preproc definition, I just commented out the part of the if statement that says abort and exit, recompiled and replaced my entire installation directory with stuff from winrel, thinking that would work. However, like I said, my cvs client would just hang. I even tried using -ttt to see something of a trace, but I didn't get past E:\Dev\Projects\eric-test\etc\terracotta>cvs -ttt commit tc-config.xml 15:24:55: -> Tracelevel set to 3.
