sorry, I did mean 1.11.2
I really wouldn't have time to do all these tests.  I can tell you that this
patch has been working for us at Goldman Sachs for over a year now.  We have
a 1000+ user base which make use of our repository daily.
I guess we'll most likely submit the patch to Project Issues and hope it
gets picked up...

Did you really mean 1.11.2 and not 1.11.12?  1.11.2 is almost 2 years old.
I haven't tried applying your patch to a more recent release, but 2 years of
coding can lead to a lot of conflicts.

If you will provide a diff against a more recent version of CVS plus some
solid test cases for src/sanity.sh, including tests of locking with links in
the repository with and without LockDir set in CVSROOT/config, and perhaps
some documentation additions/corrections for doc/cvs.texinfo, I will
consider this patch.  I am interested in the functionality but I don't have
nearly enough time to do all the cruft needed for support & maintenance just
now.  Please see the HACKING file and perhaps TESTS for more specific
instructions regarding tests and documentation.

If you can't or won't provide tests and documentation, consider posting your
patch to the issues database on cvshome.org
<http://ccvs.cvshome.org/servlets/ProjectIssues> for tracking.  Then maybe
someone will find it and get around to coding the tests & doc eventually.
