It's not normal for me. I routinely commit changes recursively that are spread across many directories and I only get a single Notepad window popping up--not one per subdirectory. -----Original Message----- From: Tony Hoyle [mailto:tmh at nodomain.org] Sent: Saturday, June 28, 2003 3:42 PM To: cvsnt at cvsnt.org cvsnt downloads at march-hare.com @CVSNT on Twitter CVSNT on Facebook Ch J Sa wrote: I've tried a couple different versions of cvs on my computer at home, and > they all behave in the following manner.

Is this a configuration issue? This is normal... it's usual to use the '-m' option to set a single edit message if you have a large commit (or use a frontend, like WinCVS). I'm not 100% sure why it was designed like that but it's been like that ever since cvs was first written... I suppose the idea is you have different commit messages for different subprojects.
