Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.


All the triggers run server-side, there are no client triggers.

CVSNT automatically versions the execute permissions of a file - you do
not need to use a client script to do this.   If a file that is checked
in has execute permission then it will be checked out with execute
permission.  If you checked in a file WITHOUT execute permission then
changed it you may need to use the force checkin option to "fix" it
(after changing the filemode): "chmod 755 fred.pl; cvs ci -m "change
mode" -f fred.pl".

If you do a "cvs log" on the file you will see the mode of each version
