You Ok, if I use the edit command with the -b option then an entry is made into the Entries.Extra file. But if you use commit -B <bugid> then you don't get an entry. So every thing is written on the client side until the commit is finished and then the bugid is written to the repository information I think. So to make this work, I need to have a client side script (macro for winCVS) that parses the entries.extra file and then runs the checks. Is there anyway to implement on the server side? Is there a winCVS or tortoise client that has this out of the box? Thanks Joseph
