Is it allowed to use hard or soft links in a CVSNT repository under UNIX to mirror single ,v RCS files to a different directory in the repository? This would also be a simple way to share common files between different repositories. Our tests have shown that it works; but which risks are connected to such a practice? How will the lockserver handle a situation, e.g. when an update is committed at exactly the same point of time for the original and for the link? Can risks be reduced, if the link is protected (no commit possible) via a lock (-k+x) or marked as static (-k+s)? Best regards Jan Giesen
