Hi All,
  I have a file called file1 (may be foo.ears or something like that)
  I committed that file into the repository from my work Space.
  cvs commit  <file1> 
  Then I was asked to write a commit message I presse ESC key and then 
  "c" for continue
  file1 was committed and it formed a version 1.1
  Now  I copied the file <file1> again into my worsk space (which will be over written on the old file if there is something new)
  Now I tried committing this file using the command
   cvs commit -m "Testing Msg version" <file1>
  To my surprise its committed and formed another version 1.2
  I am just wondering how this is possible even though there is no change in the File content.
  I tried to see the difference b/w the two versions, and I could not see any difference except the time they both were committed and the version numbers.
  Please help me to know the concept. This helps me a lot.
