CVSWeb is no good for this purpose because it requires a knowledge of the way CVS works and it also shows way too much for these users. I want to have something that is real easy to use and does not require a lot of management on the part of the engineering people. Still the production folks should be able to get the correct version of any drawing based on their needs. I have already started to specify how this can be done from a separate application so that the CVS system can be used and still the program will not show too much information. It will be a separate application using the cvs.exe from CVSNT as a client called from a GUI where the document handling is done. I can't 'hack' CVSWeb because I am no good at Perl programming. But I think I can makea credible system using Delphi, so that is what I will do. /Bo ----- Original Message ----- From: "Francis Irving" <francis.irving at creaturelabs.com> To: <bosse at agiusa.com> Cc: "'CVS-NT List'" <cvsnt at cvsnt.org cvsnt downloads at march-hare.com @CVSNT on Twitter CVSNT on Facebook>; "'CVS-Gui List'" <cvsgui at egroups.com> Sent: Saturday, July 13, 2002 12:14 AM Subject: Re: [Cvsnt] Managing production drawings through CVS > On Thu, 27 Jun 2002 22:56:16 +0200, "Bo Berglund" <bosse at agiusa.com> > wrote: > > >I would like to know if such a system already exists or if I have to > develop > >it myself.
