No problem, I can answer this way too.. The reason you don't check out admin and passwd is that it would be too great a security risk. These files control who can administer the CVS server and the other stores the user/password info. These files are typically not included in among the files checked out. You can add extra administrative files if you like. To do that you can do as follows: 1. Check out CVSROOT 2. Add one or two files of your own and commit them 3. Edit the checkoutlist file and add the files you committed to the list 4. Commit checkoutlist. Now the files you added have become part of the administrative files. Whenever a change is committed the version file in CVSROOT is normally updated but then also all files get extracted in the latest revision so there will be a cleartext file in the CVSROOT folder as well as the ,v file. This is exactly how I get the support files for CVSMailer into the repository.

Sorry for repled to your mailbox. I am not very good at using newsgroup. I mean when I "cvs checkout CVSROOT, I can only get these files, not including 'admin', 'passwd'...". ----- Original Message ----- From: "Bo Berglund" <bo.berglund at telia.com> To: "'Shepherd'" <chgg at shinewaysoft.com> Sent: Wednesday, January 08, 2003 3:00 PM Subject: RE: How to edit administrativ files? > Because these are the adminitrative files you can check out from CVSROOT... > > What is really your question here?
