RE: can not lock a branch.

Hi Larry,

Either cvs status -v call71 or more /export/cvs/build/emailor/call71,v I can find TEST_BRANCH. One problem I found is the working machine build(free BSD) cannot directly read file on cvs server machine pm2(Solaris). and RCS files are on pm2. What do you think? How to verify whether a RCS file is in the branch?

Not in those files, you don't -- CVS is telling you that it isn't there:

> RCS file: /export/cvs/build/emailor/call71,v
> cvs server: /export/cvs/build/emailor/call71,v: branch TEST_BRANCH absent

It might be useful to see what ``cvs status -v'' has to say about one of
these files.  Since CVS can't find the branch, there's nothing to lock
and thus CVS doesn't modify the RCS file.  Like I said, the message is
misleading; CVS could have modified the file if it wanted to, it just
didn't want to.  (I've checked in a change to clarify the message.)
