I wouldn't mind, because it's just for ViewVC useage. If it catches the file in the middle of a write the web output will be wrong... But I agree that it would be the clean solution to connect to the lockserver. Now for the "how": The only place I find to configure the lockserver is the CVSROOT/config file. This is inside the repository CVSNT server. But I don't have a repository, I only want the RCS wrappers... Is there an environment variable or anything to configure the lockserver access without having a repository? Or is it using the repository's CVSROOT/config file of the repository I access with rlog? This contains "localhost" - maybe I have to use the external name of the server there? More hints are very appreciated. Thanks for your time! Best regards, O. Koltermann
