cvs update problem

cvs update problem

cvs update problem


I have created a web page to update my CVS repository. I've recently noticed a problem that whenever I do an update from the web page some of the files still showed up as red instead of green (in Tortoise CVS, indicating that there is a conflict). This was not happening if we did an update directly on the server directories. On examining the files closely I also saw that the updates were happening fine but just the color of the files was not showing up properly.

The only difference I noticed was "-q" being used in the cvs command when updated directly.

e.g.: In F:\common: cvs -q update -d -P global_gui_vars.cfm

using the web page the cvs command: cvs update -d -A -P global_gui_vars.cfm

But this does not seem to be the problem. Any idea as to why this could be happening and what could be done to correct it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
