The same problems exist though - cvsnt servers tend to reside within secure intranets and making outside connections isn't something they should be doing. Sending the dump via HTTP Post would be nice if I could rig it (within the constraints that you can't do a lot after a crash). Would probably need a custom apache module though (unless there's some way of configuring it properly). > Your very confident that crashes are rare (and I have to admit that with > my experience with CVSNT, your probably right ;-).

I regularly audit the code as I'm going through it, so catch potential problems before they're noticed. 90% of the problems are in old code (the modules code and the recursion processor) that are flaky to begin with... they're so complex it's not always easy to tell what can go wrong until it actually happens. > I tend to read this mailing list very closely, to determine when to > upgrade to a new version.

I agree. Tony
