Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.

A recent post in the listed hinted that instead of defining several
repositories with keys:

Repository0=d:\some\long\path\to\first_repository
Repository1=d:\some\long\path\to\second_repository

I could use something like:

RepositoryPrefix=d:\some\long\path\to\
Repository0=first_repository
Repository1=second_repository

Is this really possible? (if not skip the rest :-)

What is the real syntax?

My 1.11.1.2 (Build 40) doesn't mention this anywhere (readme.nt or the
cvsservice dialog), but I didn't see it mentioned by Tony in the
archives (esp when expounding the new things in 1.11.1.3).
Since when is it available?

Does that mean that users CVSROOT changes from

:ntserver:my_server:d:\some\long\path\to\first_repository

to a simpler:

:ntserver:my_server:first_repository

Thanks for a quick answer because we are adding a bunch of new users in
the coming days and that would make things simpler for them (even
simpler if we change the setup before they use it).

Bd.
