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.

I've looked everywhere for a clue to this problem.

We just upgraded our server - when we moved the repository over, we didn't
move the CVSROOT directory.
we left the one that cvsnt created. Is there anything in CVSROOT besides the
cvsrc file that could affect this?
We have pretty much left the files in CVSROOT alone (both in the previous
server and in the new server).

Thank you,
Joe E.
