There are other reasons to change them. For instance, today I had some modules on a network share that some developers were editing. Rather than have them check their changes in as me (the user who checked them out) I simply changed the CVSROOT so that the files would be checked back in as them. I'd agree with you though, unless you have a real reason to change them around, it's probably not a good idea. > -----Original Message----- > From: Richard Wirth [mailto:r.wirth at wirthware.de] > Sent: Monday, July 01, 2002 4:26 PM > To: cvsnt at cvsnt.org cvsnt downloads at march-hare.com @CVSNT on Twitter CVSNT on Facebook > Subject: Re: [Cvsnt] Using pserver and the effect of cvs logoff > > > Hello Andrew, > > Monday, July 1, 2002, 9:24:29 PM, you wrote: > > IAS> Yes, all of the info about where the files came from is > saved in the CVS > IAS> folder in each directory.
