Follow-up Comment #17, patch #4573 (project cvs):

It is really unfortunate that this bug will not be fixed. There has been no
response to the case I made two and a half months ago FOR fixing the bug. It
absolutely blows my mind that the CVS maintainers will not even consider
implementing this patch as a non-default option.

Since it looks like the CVS maintainers will never fix this problem, I had to
recommend to my company that other alternatives should be evaluated, and if a
suitable alternative is found, we should switch. After a careful evaluation
of several open-source and commercial alternatives, we have decided to switch
to Subversion.

Yes - the Subversion team got it right. Keyword expansion is Subversion works
as CVS would IF the proposed patch were incorporated.
