CVS checkoutlist WinXP

CVS checkoutlist WinXP

CVS checkoutlist WinXP


I have tried few days to make working checkoutlist from CVSROOT. I want to create my own template file where will be template for commiting logs. Bu my base problem is that if I add some file into checkoutlist and than checkout my project, there is no file which I write into checkoutlist. I suppose it should be in CVS directory where are others meta files.

On the internet there are lots of "how to" but no one had problem with this.

Please can anyone help my with this, why my files are not checkouted from repository, if they are specified in checkoutlist?

I'm using CVSNT:
Client: Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT) 2.5.03 (Scorpio) Build 2382 (client/server)
Server: Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT) 2.5.04 (Zen) Build 3236 () (client/server)


RE: CVS checkoutlist WinXP

I think you may be misunderstanding what the checkout list actually does. It's not for when you check out the CVSROOT into a sandbox so no the files you list should not be appearing in the CVS folder with the meta data.
The checkout list works when you commit changes to the files in CVSROOT. If the changed file is found in the checkout list then the changed version of it is checked out into the CVSROOT area on the server. This enables theses checked out files to be used by scripts that act on the server.

I hope that makes things clearer
