In an attempt to work around this problem, I re-named the file back to its original file name. After that, client updates received the error "cvs server: nothing known about <original_filename>". Panic ensued. I looked at the repo via viewvc, which showed it still there (with the original filename), as well as the interesting .directory_history file. Looking inside of that file, I didn't think that the differences between revisions made sense. Looking in the revision log of the twice-renamed file didn't show any record of the renames, so I took a random stab in the dark and renamed the .directory_history,v file in the server's repository, pre-pending "BAK". Voila! Everything magically worked! Though I now so no record of either rename (as I expected). So, a couple questions: - Should I run screaming in horror from this kind of workaround, or is it a reasonable solution to my current problem? - What additional data would you like from me to help fix this serious breakage in advertised-working functionality? -- Bryce Schober
