Re: cvs repository broken?
It is a small metadata cache that is maintained by CVS. It can get
inconsistent, the most common cause being a network connection going
down during a checkin. Luckily it is easily detected and easily fixed.
or one noticing the little
ChangeLog appears to contain change markers
message, and hitting ^C
... and quickly googling the error message as soon as the retried
checkin inexorably fails :-) I wonder why does not CVS say
abort/continue in that case, warning and going on is plain stupid...
And strictly speaking the network connection does go down upon ^C :-)
