Having just switched to cvsnt from a different cvs client I immediately
ran into the problem that I can no longer edit or unedit when offline. I
found this discussed and dismissed 4 years ago.

As a user who is mostly offline the fact that edit creates a local copy
thus allowing a comparison of changes whilst offline, as well as ability
to unedit if necessary, is VERY valuable.  This behaviour people are
asking for is only what it says in cederqvist...

"When using client/server cvs, you can use the cvs edit and cvs unedit
commands even if cvs is unable to successfully communicate with the
server; the notifications will be sent upon the next successful cvs

I see you have dropped that paragraph from your doc.

I guess I will have to investigate writing some macros to do the same
thing - this is a big disappointment - tools that just install and work
are preferable to those you have to finish off yourself.

IMO you gave the original emailer the bum's rush. And I expect no
better.  But if you're trying to keep track of what people think on this
issue, please note that offline working still happens.
