I wouldn't characterise it as a either a discussion or a disagreement - the fact is that different tools operate different ways because the options are there. Options/choice/freedom is a good thing, not a bad thing. CVSNT (and EVS) allows rules to be maintained centrally, giving an organisation that uses it more control over its behaviour. Regardless of whether a person likes or dislikes the behaviour of TortoiseCVS the fact is that some other tool will operate differently (Eclipse? WinCVS?) so if you need to ensure consistency then it needs to be done on the server. Needless to say that all other open source version control systems I've looked at do not provide this ability (eg: SVN, CVS, GIT...). Regards, Arthur
