Hi Lionello, As to your questions, I'm not sure about if everyone's invalid change text problem is of the same nature as mine. I've been using cvsnt on unix for about a year, and cvsnt on Win2K for almost two years prior, and we've only had 4 or 5 files crop up with this problem. I know Tony has been trying to debug this, so I thought I'd publish what I'd seen. To me it looks like somehow the client or server dropped the empty line at the end of the file when saving it to the rcs file, but it is certainly not something that happens consistently. I have lots of files that end in the same manner that have no problems. One possibility is that we have a "realtime" virus scanner running on the client side, and that is known to cause sporadic problems. I don't know of an automated repository checker, but I think one could be built fairly simply using rcs tools. Fixing them depends on what exactly the problem is in general. I'm not sure if Tony has any more information on what other people are seeing.

Is this a bug in cvs/cvsnt? 2) Do you think there's a way to automate this check'n'fix process? Does a repository checker/fixer exist? With the number of invalid change texts we have now, I'd really to check them and either fix the corrupt version, or delete the version including all the older ones. Lio.
