I agree completely with Tony - the original behaviour of CVS was duplicitous - edit was supposed to keep your teammates advised and yet it couldn't if it was offline. An alternative would be a "silent edit" which could be a parameter to edit or a separate comment. In either case (depending on the server config) the server will insist on a "real commit" and/or "real edit" when you are back online. Again - if you'd like to make the modification and post it to cvsnt-dev that would be seriously considered. Regards, Arthur Barrett
