>'commit -c' just checks to see if you're a valid editor of the file. It appears that it doesn't actually, and looks like a bug to me. It should not allow to commit (if used the commit -c) if you don't have a valid edit on the file, just like it doesn't allow to "edit -c" if someone else did before. Of course there is always "-f" to force commit and edit, but general "-c" should be reserved as it claims by it's name ;) Best Regards, Jerzy ----- Original Message ----- From: "Tony Hoyle" <tmh at nodomain.org> Newsgroups: support.cvsnt To: <cvsnt at cvsnt.org cvsnt downloads at march-hare.com @CVSNT on Twitter CVSNT on Facebook> Sent: Tuesday, September 17, 2002 4:48 PM Subject: Re: [cvsnt] problems with edit/commit -c > On Mon, 16 Sep 2002 19:44:40 +0000, Kim Sparrow wrote: > > > The 'edit -c' part seems to work fine.
