I use this technique also in place of the modules and modules2 files. But this is on the same server with different repositories and we use sspi authentication. THe fact that the files come from different repositories on our server is what causes the need for separate checkouts of modules to subdirectories. Right now my server is 2.0.41 and the client is 2.0.41a I have noted behaviour that I cannot explain, but basically some cvs commands actually do decend through the hierarchy and use the root found there and some don't. So it is not a refusal on the part of cvs to do this always, only some commands do not work. I know (by memory, no check today) that cvs *tag* does in fact run down into the subfolders, but I think I recall cvs *update* is having problems. This means that it is possible to create a branch tag from top that is applied on all subfolders no matter from which repository, but then I cannot update to this branch because the update does not traverse the folders... So I have to update on individual folders instead. Very strange. /Bo -----Original Message----- From: cvsnt-bounces at cvsnt.org [mailto:cvsnt-bounces at cvsnt.org]On Behalf Of Tony Hoyle Sent: den 13 december 2004 15:01 To: cvsnt at cvsnt.org cvsnt downloads at march-hare.com @CVSNT on Twitter CVSNT on Facebook Subject: [cvsnt] Re: cvs update does not descend into subdirectories with different CVSROOT Werner Weiling wrote: > With the current version CVS doesn't descend into a repository which is > different to the one where I have started. As far as I know it has never done this... it's not something I've ever tried though. Basically it can only make one server connection per client instance, so a root on a different server can't be used - there are some comments in the source to this effect and it makes sense (especially given the number of global variables... the effects would be very unpredictable).
