No! This is definitely not what happened whenever I have done an Import in the past so far. I have vendor branches with up to twenty revisions and more on them without me ever having committed a single one manually (on the vendor branch that is). All these branch revisions were created using Import. There wouldn't be any point in it if this didn't work, would there? For me it has always worked exactly as described in the Cederqvist. However, I must confess that my previous statement was a test case error. I just realized that our CVSNT server has not yet been upgraded. I just tested again with my local CVSNT 2.0.31 server and it behaves as you described: It does not allow me to do Update Imports anymore. This is a big step backwards IMO. :( Cheers, -- Oliver ---- ------------------ JID: ogiesen at jabber.org ICQ: 18777742 (http://wwp.icq.com/18777742)
