But such a system does not exist for cvs commit. And it would create a lot of strange problems as well for example what can happen is that a later commit is sending in a file with an earlier timestamp just because the PC of that user happened to have a clock that was set erroneously. The way CVS works ensures a common time reference (the clock of the CVS server itself). HTH /Bo (Bo Berglund, developer in Sweden)
