> Using CVSNT 2.0.3 I encountered a strange thing. When I commit and update
> my .html or .java files keywords are substituted as expected ($Revision:
> 1.1 $ becomes $Revision: 1.2 $ etc). But all of my other text files (like
> my .XML files) that contain keywords are not affected at all. I need to
> use an explicit "update -kkv" command in order to get the substitution in
> these files. I've looked thru the documentation and that tells me all
> files are treated as text unless otherwise stated in the cvswrapper or
> .cvswrappers files or when added explicitly different to CVS.
> Since all my files are added using the same command, all files should be
> treated as text shouldn't they, all binary files I've included in a
> cvswrappers file that sits in my CVSROOT directory. And that works
> perfectly.
> So my question is how can I tell CVSNT that I want keyword substitution by
> default on all of my files unless I tell CVSNT explicitly different.
> Either on the commandline or using the cvswrappers file.
> Thanks in advance,
