Hmm.  I can see your point.  

If anything is done, Tony, please make it configurable.  At my
organization, I don't want anyone to be able to do cvs edit in offline
mode.  The server needs to know about all edits because the list of who
is editing files is a key part of the tools that we use to keep
communication flowing.  For example, we have a little wrapper that
presents the "cvs editors" information in a nice UI.  We also take
advantage of the fact that cvs.exe will warn you when you edit a file if
someone else is already editing it (you can then go talk to them and
make sure you guys are playing nice).  If people could do offline edits,
then the server could potentially have an inaccurate list of who is
editing what files.  That would not be good for us.

Subject: [cvsnt] Edit in offline mode


    could somebody explain why the cvs.exe from cvsnt project cannot
perform cvs edit or unedit command in offline mode? The basic unix
implementation can make this without problem, it reports that it is not
possible connect to the server, but it makes file writeable and moved it
into cvs/base folder. So the unedit comand also can be applied in
    Why this behavior changed? Is there any ways to have the same
behavior on CVSNT?
    For me, working in offline is very important feature of cvs, and
current behavior of CVS.exe from CVS NT, make this impossible.

Thank you,
