The .cvsrc file is on the client. Just make sure that every client has a .cvsrc file in their %HOME directory containing

    edit -c

and all edits will be done with the -c option.

See http://www.cvshome.org/docs/manual/cvs_16.html#SEC116 for details.

Subject: [Cvsnt] Newbie question - reserved checkout, watched files, edit -c


I am running CVSNT Our group would like to use reserved checkout (i know, i know...) and according to Devguy, reserved checkouts don't work. The next best thing would be to use either edit -c or "watched". Is there a way of enforcing edit -c from the server? It looks like edit -c works only if everyone agrees to use edit -c but I know people will forget to use -c.

At http://www.devguy.com/fp/cfgmgmt/tools/install.htm#edit_c Devguy mentions something about editing a .cvsrc file in the HOME directory. Is this on the client's machines or on the server? I do not have a HOME environment variable set on my server (and it works fine).

Thanks for your help!
