Here is a revised list...

1. Import being handled differently when branch exists.

2. Merge not creating a conflict when branch exists.

3. diff and rdiff -s not coping with different branches having
different version numbers while still being identical.
(hopefully fixed on cvs1-11-x-branch).

4. diff between two labels, first missing, second dead produces an
error instead of silence (hopefully fixed on cvs1-11-x-branch)

5. diff and rdiff are not mirrors (feature request, not bug) - but
actually, it means that there is no way to get a non-context diff
between two branches, because if you have deleted all the files
in a directory, you can't get "cvs diff" to show you that these
files have been deleted.  Which renders it inoperable for an
automatic procedure to send out differences.  :-(

6. multiple ctrl-c leaves locks (patch provided not yet tested,
not sure it can be tested).

But for "production merging/shipping", so long as the wrapper
scripts detect "has been added" and rdiff is used and the head
is not used, then the process has integrity.

BFN.  Paul.
