Well, it may be minor, but it is rather annoying. Given the style of development described (which is how we work, as well), and a moderately sized team, it quickly results in *every* delivery of code to the mainline causing *every* file to be bounced a revision - and the majority of these changes are null-deltas. And then when people merge from mainline-to-branch they too get a null-delta. I accept that it doesn't cause any harm, but it does end up with a lot of unnecessary cruft in the RCS files that make WinCVS graph, ViewCVS log, and CVSGraph all a lot less useful because there is so much "null" information. Not that I'm saying that I came up with a correct coding solution, because it probably wasn't :-) phil -- change name before "@" to "phil" for email
