1998-07-29  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* README.VMS: We generally don't need GNU patch any more.

1998-06-03  Jim Kingdon  <>

	that it applies to Solaris 2.5 as well as 2.6.

1998-06-02  Assar Westerlund  <>

1998-06-01  Assar Westerlund  <>
	and Ian Lance Taylor  <>

	* Check for GSSAPI headers individually.  Use a
	different set of GSSPI libraries if gssapi.h rather than
	gssapi/gssapi.h is found.  Adds Heimdal support.
	* configure, Rebuild.

1998-05-25  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* cvs.spec (%description): Rewrite to be slightly more verbose
	about the basic features.  Don't try to mention what CVS lacks.

	approximately 6 months ago.

1998-04-28  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* TESTS: Add note about Solaris sort program (reported by Mark

1998-03-16  Larry Jones  <>

	* Simplify test for shadow password support since
	the code now handles the case where shadow passwords are supported
	but are not in use.
	* configure: Regenerated.

1998-03-07  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* TESTS: Remove note about SGI's XFS.  Someone reports that it
	works (I would assume due to the 13 Feb 1998, and earlier, changes

	* NEWS: Add item about PreservePermissions.  Fix unclear wording
	in gserver item.

1998-03-04  Jim Kingdon  <>

	always define it.

Wed Feb 11 23:32:45 PST 1998  Wilfredo Sanchez  <>

	* INSTALL: Add Apple Rhapsody to platforms list.

	* Add path check for tar.

4 Feb 1998  Jim Kingdon

	* cvsnt.mak: The usual "because Visual C++ feels like it"
	changes.  These ones seem to have to do with reordering
	files and release versus debug configurations, mainly.

Fri Jan 30 10:37:40 1998  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* INSTALL: Update which version of CVS was tested with EMX.

15 Jan 1998  W. L. Estes  <>
	and Jim Kingdon  <>

	* cvs.spec, Fix some problems with the spec file
	distributed with cvs.  RPM chokes on a build root of slash, so
	that is gone now.  CVS is relocatable (as far as I know) so I
	added a prefix tag.  The source location was incorrect and in
	fixing that I had to add a `g' flag to one of the sed commands in
	the so the spec file gets generated correctly.

13 Jan 1998  Jim Kingdon

	* cvsnt.mak: Add lib/fncase.c.  Plus of course the usual
	"because Visual C++ feels like it" changes.

Tue Jan 13 16:49:38 1998  Ian Lance Taylor  <>

	* acconfig.h (UTIME_EXPECTS_WRITABLE): Add undef line.
	* If cygwin32, define UTIME_EXPECTS_WRITABLE.
	* configure, Regenerate.

	* Add test for cygwin32, and set LIBOBJS and LIBS
	* configure: Regenerate.

Sun Jan 11 11:43:55 1998  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* HACKING: Add example of indentation for switch statement.  I
	always have to look this one up, and it seems worthwhile to
	specify it here rather than be unsure which switch statement in
	CVS to use as an example.

Wed Jan  7 09:41:08 1998  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* TODO: Revise item 149 (concerning changing CVS/Root and such).
	"This whole area is a rather bad pile of individual decisions which
	accumulated over time, some of them probably bad decisions with

Wed Dec 31 09:25:20 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* FAQ: Re-import from FAQ-O-Matic.  Features a change regarding
	removing directories.

Tue Dec 23 08:28:44 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	address from to per email from Martin
	Hamilton.  When referring to bug-reporting procedure refer to
	Cederqvist not README.

Tue Dec 16 13:13:53 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* FAQ: Re-import from FAQ-O-Matic.  The content is the same, but
	instead of being from Mosaic, it is from "lynx -dump -nolist".
 	This output is somewhat better (for example, it is formatted for
	80 columns or so, rather than Mosaic which is rather
	inconsistent), and also lynx is free and still maintained whereas
	NCSA Mosaic is proprietary and no longer maintained.

	* FAQ: Re-import from FAQ-O-Matic.  Features an update to the
	Sablime question.

	* NEWS: Add item about GSSAPI.

Fri Dec 12 14:00:57 1997  Ian Lance Taylor  <>

	* Add --with-gssapi option, and look for gssapi.h
	and GSSAPI Kerberos v5 libraries.
	* acconfig.h: Add HAVE_GSSAPI.
	* configure, Regenerate.

Thu Dec 11 15:58:06 1997  Eric Mumpower  <>

	* Let --with-krb4 override the system Kerberos
	header files and libraries, if any.
	* configure: Regenerate.

Thu Dec  4 20:01:02 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* (AC_CHECK_FUNCS): Remove mempcpy per change to
	* configure: Regenerated (never was regenerated after getwd change).

1997-12-04  Jim Meyering  <>

	* (AC_CHECK_FUNCS): Add mempcpy.

Thu Dec  4 10:42:32 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* BUGS: Update for kfogel .cvswrappers fix.

1997-11-29  Jim Kingdon

	* cvsnt.mak: Remove lib/getwd.c (see lib/ChangeLog for rationale).

	it" changes.

Sat Nov 29 22:10:32 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* (AC_REPLACE_FUNCS): Remove getwd (see lib/ChangeLog
	for rationale).

Mon Nov 24 10:36:39 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* INSTALL: Update QNX information per email from Michael Hunter of

Wed Nov 19 17:44:21 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* INSTALL: Add Sequent entry per bug-cvs report.

1997-11-17  Karl Fogel  <>

	clients; this is fixed.

	* BUGS: Add yet another binary files problem.

1997-11-14  Karl Fogel  <>

	* cvsnt.mak: updated for diff/ subdir.

Fri Nov 14 12:25:10 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* BUGS: Remove item about dying gasps message.  At least one known
	cause has been fixed.

Wed Nov 12 20:24:49 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* FAQ: Re-import from FAQ-O-Matic.  Features a wording fix to
	"What do I do first? How do I create a Repository?" and a
	formatting fix (makes it clear which bullets are under what)
	to "What is a module?"

	* NEWS: Add item about RCS library.  Remove item about RCSBIN in
	* INSTALL: Simplify instructions to reflect the fact that one need
	not any longer install RCS and GNU diff.
	* PROJECTS: Remove item about RCS library; it is done.

Mon, 10 Nov 1997  Jim Kingdon

	* cvsnt.dsp: For diff/diff.c, also look for include files in
	diff directory.  This means we get diff/system.h not lib/system.h.

Sun Nov  9 16:16:56 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* TODO (#195): New item, about rsync and such issues.

Thu Nov  6 14:29:14 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* TODO (#194): New item, about separated metadata.

	* TODO (#186): Rewrite paragraph on CVSclusters to be clearer
	about what this can do and why I think it is a cool idea.

Sun Nov  2 19:34:30 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* DEVEL-CVS: Wording fix: want to specify that new developers are
	granted checkin access and the ability to send to devel-cvs, not
	specify whether this is implemented via an "account" (whatever
	that is) (editorial change, not run by devel-cvs).

Fri Oct 31 16:30:57 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* NEWS: Mention admin -o rev1::rev2.

Wed Oct 29 08:40:05 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* TODO: Add item 193, about alternatives to timestamps in CVS/Entries.

Tue Oct 28 19:59:48 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* TODO (190): "rcs failed" message is no longer affected by global
	-q option.

1997-10-28  Jim Kingdon

	* .cvsignore: Add Visual C++ files du jour, namely

	* cvsnt.dsp: Add files for diff library.  The custom build
	stuff for diff/version.c and diff/diff.c was to deal with
	there also being a src/version.c and src/diff.c.  There
	might be an easier way.

Mon Oct 27 11:21:15 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* FAQ: Re-import from FAQ-O-Matic.  Features an edit from Larry
	Jones regarding CVS on Windows.

Mon Oct 20 15:23:17 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* BUGS: Add item about spaces in login names.

Mon Oct 20 10:25:42 1997  Hannes R. Boehm  <>

	* TODO (#192): Also mention issue with opening connections to new
	servers if CVSROOT changes.

	* TODO (#191): Add thoughts on external difference programs.

1997-10-11  Noel Cragg  <>

	* BUGS: remove note about the `-d' flag bug that was just fixed.

	* TODO: new item 192.

Thu Oct  9 12:59:28 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* TODO: Revise item #182 to be clearer and to point to the
	unofficial patch.

Thu Sep 25 14:48:26 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* Also recurse into diff directory.

Wed Sep 24 10:35:50 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* Don't check for system-supplied regex matcher; see
	comment for rationale.
	* configure: Regenerated.

Tue Sep 23 16:00:25 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* BUGS: Add item about cvs add and -k wrappers.

Mon Sep 22 11:21:11 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* TODO: Revise item #191 in response to xdelta 1.10 release and a
	few other random thoughts.

Sun Sep 21 17:56:28 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* Instead of checking for memchr, just define
	Add comment about AC_FUNC_VFORK and vfork in general.
	* acconfig.h: Add HAVE_MEMCHR and HAVE_STRCHR.
	* configure, Regenerated.

	* Regenerate using autoheader from autoconf 2.10.

Sat Sep 20 01:17:10 1997  Tim Pierce  <>

	[notes: (1) includes the patches to which he sent
	(presumably generated), (2) I have omitted a change, which was
	sent without a ChangeLog entry, to change re_exec to
	re_compile_pattern in, (3) Also adds diff/Makefile in
	AC_OUTPUT -kingdon]

	* (USOURCE_SUBDIRS, check, remotecheck, installcheck):
	Add diff.

	Note that AC_CHECK_FUNCS(vfork)
	has been replaced by AC_FUNC_VFORK... libdiff wants the more
	specific test, and it seems unlikely to break CVS.

	(AC_CHECK_HEADERS): Add limits.h and sys/file.h.
	(AC_REPLACE_FUNCS): Add memchr.
	(AC_CHECK_FUNCS): Remove vfork.

Fri Sep 19 09:59:33 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* TODO: Add item #191, concerning how to store binary files.

Wed Sep 17 16:13:49 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* TESTS: Add ideas about ability to pass spaces in arguments, and
	stdin, to the program under test, as something to consider for the
	different test frameworks.

Tue Sep 16 00:14:55 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* BUGS: Add item about importing binary files.

	* TODO: Adjust item #150 to reflect the fact that the client is
	not quite so mean about tossing the log message as it was.

Fri Sep 12 13:04:31 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* INSTALL: Update Windows entries per email from Greg Strockbine

Thu Sep 11 15:03:21 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* TODO: New item #190, about meaning of -q and -Q global options.

Wed Sep 10 18:48:41 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* TODO: A few more thoughts on "cvs message" (item 150).

Tue Sep  9 22:20:15 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* README.VMS (Notes regarding compiling on VAX/VMS): Add item
	about mode_t and pid_t.

Sun Sep  7 17:34:03 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* FAQ: Re-import from FAQ-O-Matic.  The metavariables are back.

	* FAQ: Re-import from FAQ-O-Matic.  Features comment from
	julian@whistle about update -r branch:date.  It also clobbered the
	metavariables (confusion about "<" as data vs. HTML tag I would
	guess), which I plan on fixing in a moment.

	* Add comment about re_exec and regexp syntax.

	* (AC_REPLACE_FUNCS): Remove strdup; CVS was long
	ago converted to use its own routine xstrdup.
	* configure: Regenerated.

Sat Sep  6 00:08:20 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* FAQ: Re-import from FAQ-O-Matic.  In particular: GIC info
	updated, binary files updated (e.g. -kb not -ko), rename database
	and rCVS info updated (refer to TODO), tweaks to section on
	contributing (HACKING, DEVEL-CVS, &c), Cyclic info updated
	(e.g. remove Indiana address), usenet info updated
	(e.g. not gnu.*).

Fri Sep  5 20:46:26 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* FAQ: Add another introductory paragraph which talks about out of
	date material from 1995 FAQ.

	* FAQ: Re-import from FAQ-O-Matic.  This was mainly as a proof of
	concept that I could edit the Cygnus question and have the diffs
	come out looking right (which worked), but I also discovered that
	the previous checkin was truncated partway through.

	* FAQ: Replace file with an introductory paragraph plus a
	downloaded copy of Molli's FAQ-O-Matic.  I believe the content
	closely matches the 1995 Grubbs FAQ but because everything is
	re-ordered it would be painstaking work to verify this.

Thu Sep  4 17:33:53 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* BUGS: Add item about -w global option and client/server.

Wed Sep  3 23:03:34 1997  Noel Cragg  <>

	* TODO: Verbosify verbiage in item #189.

Wed Sep  3 14:14:54 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* TODO: Add item #189, concerning renames.

Sat Aug 30 03:26:57 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* TODO: Fix typo in Noel's change.

Sat Aug 30 03:17:36 1997  Noel Cragg  <>

	* TODO: Add a header so emacs chooses the correct editing mode.
  	Made several entries more verbose (expanded some of the less
 	well-known acronyms and/or added pointers to further

Wed Aug 20 09:51:52 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* INSTALL: Remove "SparcClassing" typo that has been there for
	a while.

Wed Aug 20 09:51:52 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>
			  and Loren James Rittle <>

	* INSTALL: Update information for SunOS4, Solaris, Digital Unix,
	and HPUX.

Fri Aug 15 16:42:12 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* INSTALL: Remove the "CVS 1.6" crud; it really isn't needed.  Add
	paragraph about the meaning of the last three arguments to cvs

Thu Aug 14 14:42:53 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>
			  and Loren James Rittle <>

	* INSTALL: Update information for SunOS4 and Solaris.

Mon Aug  4 00:02:24 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* BUGS: Be specific about wrappers not working client/server.

Sat Aug  2 09:23:50 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* INSTALL: In step 4, be more generic (the CVS sources are just an
	example, and people might not have them handy).

Fri Jul 25 17:02:30 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* INSTALL: Refer to cvs.texinfo as the Cederqvist manual; that
	seems to be the description which best applies no matter how it
	was obtained.  Be a little more explicit about the "$" prompt
	convention and setting environment variables.  Use double quotes
	because they work on both DOS and Unix.

Thu Jul 24 12:22:49 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* NEWS: Also mention SystemAuth.

	* INSTALL (MIPS): Add more detailed report concerning Irix 6.2,
	as reported by (Larry Jones).

Tue Jul 22 17:35:31 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* INSTALL (PowerPC): Add item for Lynx 2.5.

21 Jul 1997  Jim Kingdon

	* (DISTFILES): Add cvsnt.dsp.

Mon Jul 21 09:40:10 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* Adjust comment regarding version of autoconf which
	introduced --bindir.

Fri Jul 18 09:47:12 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* TODO: Remove item 161 (the comments in cvs.texinfo have a much
	more complete discussion of date format issues).  In item 30,
	change "patch" to "rdiff" and expand discussion slightly.  Remove
	item 64 (the performance issues in initial checkout have probably
	changed quite a bit since that was written and in any event it
	isn't particularly useful without specifics of what is slow and
	ideas for speeding it up).

	* INSTALL: Reorganize to separate out building/installing CVS
	executables from what to do once you have them.  Adjust Visual C++
	instructions to deal with Visual C++ 5.x.  Add brief mentions of
	platforms other than unix and Windows.

Thu Jul 17 21:13:16 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* TODO: In item 39, talk about how PRCS 1.2 as a possible model.

Sat Jul 12 15:43:01 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* HACKING: Rewrite paragraph on arbitrary limits to reflect the
	fact that the known arbitrary limits are gone.

8 Jul 1997  Jim Kingdon

	* cvsnt.dsp: Turn on browse information.

Thu Jul  3 10:07:01 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* INSTALL: Sending exact suggested text is almost as good as a diff.

	* INSTALL (i386 family): Add lines about Watcom and EMX on OS/2.

	* TODO: Add notes about popt and option parsing in general.

Wed Jul  2 13:11:03 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* TODO: Update item 149 to reflect CVS/Root.

	* TODO: Add item 187, about usage errors vs. help messages.

Mon Jun 23 18:24:13 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* NEWS: Adjust mention of read-only access in the light of
	changes to cvs.texinfo.

	* TODO: Add item 186, concerning multisite.

Sun, 22 Jun 1997  Jim Kingdon

	* cvsnt.dsp: New file.  This apparently is what Visual C++ 5.0
	uses in lieu of a .mak file (or so it seems).
	* .cvsignore: Add cvsnt.opt cvsnt.dsw cvsnt.plg.  These seem to
	be the generated files du jour for Visual C++ 5.0.

Thu Jun 19 17:16:39 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* NEWS: Add item about CVSROOT/config.

Wed Jun 18 00:00:02 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* NEWS: Mention pserver --allow-root.

Mon Jun 16 19:07:34 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* configure: Regenerated.

Sun Jun  8 23:44:00 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* (AC_CHECK_FUNCS): Remove mkfifo; not used anywhere.
	* configure, Regenerated.

Thu May 29 15:53:06 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* DEVEL-CVS: Add "Policy regarding checkout-only access" to
	replace parenthetical remark about checkout-only access.  This is
	more of a cosmetic/editorial change than a new policy.

Wed May 21 17:02:29 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* BUGS: Add item about wrappers.

Fri May 16 13:43:53 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* BUGS: Add item about "cvs export" and binary files.

Sun May 11 11:38:03 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* README.VMS: Remove information about "direct TCP".  Noone has
	been complaining about it being broken (the code bitrotted not long
	after it was written), nor has anyone complained
	that contrib/listener.c was omitted from the distribution (because
	it wasn't mentioned in contrib/ DISTFILES).  If there
	is a desire to resurrect such a feature, it should use port 2401
	as now discussed in doc/cvsclient.texi.

Thu May  8 12:14:40 1997  Larry Jones  <>
	and Jim Kingdon  <>

	* INSTALL: Update MIPS/SGI Irix 6.2
	* TESTS: Add note about TESTDIR and SGI Irix 6's XFS.

	* TODO: Add item #185, concerning keyword expansion and merges.

Sun May  4 19:46:03 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* README: Replace section on reporting bugs with a reference to
	the bug-reporting section in cvs.texinfo.

Fri May  2 22:50:04 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* BUGS: Remove item about importing binary files; the bug is fixed.

Sun Apr 27 19:54:34 1997  Jim Kingdon  <>

	* INSTALL: Refer to doc/DIFFUTILS-2.7-BUG.

	* INSTALL: Don't mention GREP; CVS no longer uses it.

	* Add comment about --bindir.

Thu Apr 24 15:21:17 1997  Norbert Kiesel  <>

	* (AC_CHECK_FUNCS): added tempnam and mktemp
	*, configure: Regenerated with autoconf 2.10.

21 Apr 1997  Jim Kingdon

	* cvsnt.mak: Visual C++, as usual, wants to fiddle with this.
	This time it would appear to be chiefly the dependencies.

Mon Apr 21 01:06:31 1997  Ian Lance Taylor  <>

	* NEWS: Document that the client no longer needs an external patch

	without more information it is impossible to know what behavior is
	being discussed.  Remove item #157 concerning module names in cvs
	release; cvs release takes a directory name, not a module name.
	Remove item #159 about checking access times; this is as likely to
	be an annoyance as a help, and people who are into that can just
	look at the result from "cvs update" (directly or with a script).
	Remove item #164 concerning variables in *info files; it is done.
	Remove item #35 (it just says "cvs admin" is cheesy, which isn't
	specific enough to be useful).  Rewrite #39 to be specific about
	what would be nice in having branches track each other.  Remove
	item #46--I'm not sure what it means and if it means that one
	should check in with "cci" or some such instead of "cvs ci" then
	that is an installation hassle and a minimal convenience.  Add
	item #180.

	* src/error.h: here.  Remove CVS_SUPPORT
	ifdefs; remove unused variable error_message_count.
