Ian, text-only attachments should come through all right, but it may
depend on your mail client.  Thunderbird works all right for me when
sending patches.  Specifically, the following MIME types *are not*
stripped by the list's content filter: multipart/mixed,
multipart/alternative, & text/plain.

Your attachment of a cleaned-up version of Darren's message didn't
come through, though.  Maybe Thunderbird doesn't attach messages as
one of the text types?

I've looked in my sent mail folder and Thunderbird gave it a MIME type of "text/x-diff", possibly based on the file extension ".patch". I'll try renaming it to ".txt" and see if that works.

Please find attached my CVS patch for preserving editor flag upon
multiple checkouts.

The issue is : development projects frequently have developers working
on more than 1 branch at the same time.  For instance, they may be
working on forthcoming development work, in addition to fixing live
support issues.

The current code will overwrite a users edit flag if they check out
the source code again.  There is a comment in update.c that suggests
it would be better to do this instead of by user, by work area; which
makes more sense.

When I get a spare couple of days, I will code / implement this
feature as it will be very useful.

This patch adds a new ./configure option called --enable-keep-editing
which will preserve a users edit upon checkout.
