Update I did the build 66 install this morning and the Checkout Read Only option is again working as expected. I did not attempt to do any reserved edits while I was using build 65 so I don't know if I would have experienced the same behavior as Edwin. Erik W. Warren Sr. Engineer - Flt. Ops.

On my fresh installation of CVSNT (cvsnt-220.127.116.11-65) and WinCVS (cvsnt-18.104.22.168-57k) I check-out a module with option read-only. All files appear in my local workspace, BUT read/write, while I expected them to be read-only (is that the right assumption ?). The fact that it isn't read-only on checkout will be fixed in build 66 then ? Then, after I edit one of the files and commit it, the file has a new revision number AND then it becomes read-only ! When I then want to edit the file I choose "reserved edit". Another developer tries to access the same file, with "reserved edit" but the file appears locked to him. But when he chooses "Edit" (thus not reserved") he can still access and edit the file. Is this normal ? What is the use of the locking then. I know that CVS encourages a team not to apply locking, but we are currently looking for the best way to use CVS within our team. Best regards and thanks in advance for all help, Edwin _______________________________________________ cvsnt mailing list cvsnt at cvsnt.org cvsnt downloads at march-hare.com @CVSNT on Twitter CVSNT on Facebook http://www.cvsnt.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/cvsnt https://www.march-hare.com/cvspro/en.asp#downcvs
