Perhaps I'm doing something wrong here: my coworker and I are testing out reserved edits and can't seem to get it to work correctly. (Seeing that he's a hardware guy and wants to get the other hardware guys using cvs, getting reserved edits on their binary files seems to be a good thing.) The 'edit -c' part seems to work fine. When the other person tries to do an 'edit -c', it says "cvs [edit aborted]: files being edited!" Good. When the other tries to do a plain 'edit', the CVS\fileattr file in the repository correctly notes that both are now editors of the file. But when only one of us has a reserved edit and the other tries a 'commit -c' the file gets committed as if it wasn't locked, no warning message or anything. From http://www.devguy.com/fp/cfgmgmt/tools/install.htm I think I understand how it's supposed to work.. and yet what I'm observing doesn't quite match up. I don't need to do any scripting in the CVSROOT directory like in the old 'admin -l' days do I? I'm using 57i. K. Sparrow
