Follow-up Comment #9, patch #4573 (project cvs):

This bug should be fixed for the following reasons:

1) Todd Denniston's point No. 6 below - "6) if the users need something that
will not be overwritten by the VCS then create that, these keywords were not
meant for that purpose."

If you believe this, you must conclude that if the only changes to the file
are in the RCS keyword fields, then the file should not be considered as
changed. It looks like this exactly is what the proposed fix does.

2) Derek's comments # 2 and 8 propose using -k options to defeat server-side
keyword expansion in lieu of fixing this bug. I consider that a rather
drastic workaround, especially since someone actually took the trouble to fix
the bug.

Re. Derek's comment # 6, yes - I have voted for this patch.
