Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.

at present I have 3 problem candidates.
- one file could not become commited - 3 days later functioned it. In the
meantime some tags were set.
- 2 file could not update in other sandbox. I deleted the ,v-files and added
it again. (fortunately there were only few revisions)

Unfortunately I cannot place the problem behind - it is however always
connected with one branch.

I use WinCVS and added the file binary (-kb), afterwards I changed the
option with "admin -kB file" and "update file".
