Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.


after editing a file (that ha a watch added), and then deciding to discard 
the changes I've made by using "cvs update -C", the edited file gets 
replaced by the HEAD revision of the repository.
However, the checked out file is read-only (watch is still active), 
whereas in the repository I'm still mentioned as an editor of the file 
(CVS/fileattr). Shouldn't either the checked-out file be read-write, or 
(IMHO better) the user be
removed from the editors list?


Mit freundlichen Grüßen / with regards
