Hi All,

I saw one issue with CVS. Could any one suggest what could be the
reasons ?

One user (user A) did some modification to one of the file and committed
to CVS.

User B took the update and modified the same file and committed.

But the change did by User A was not reflected in the latest file? (It
did not shown any Conflict either)

How can this happen?

1. If the user B replaced the content entirely (by moving to a temp file
then did the modification and pasted back) and committed back to CVS.(it
won't throw conflict)

Apart from the #1 marked above, is there any way to get this error?
