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 :-)
