I'd just like to clear something.

I already have a project in my CVS repository.
Now I'd like the files to have $Id$ inside.
What I do:
- edit a file and add $Id$ in some comment
- commit changes to CVS

Now nothing happens (now $Id$ should be in a form like $Id:
SourceFile.java,v 1.12 2002/05/07 13:09:27 kovi Exp $).

If I create a new file inside the same project and add it to CVS repository
then $Id$ gets translated into the correct form($Id: NewFile.java,v 1.2
2002/05/07 13:09:28 kovi Exp $).

Any ideas on why this is happening or is this just a feature of CVS?
