|Subject:||CVS/Root overrides people's CVSROOT environment variables?|
|Date:||Mon, 20 Aug 2001 11:16:00 -0500|
We've run into a problem in the case of having multiple people using the same working copy--I know it sounds dumb, but here's the deal. On our development webserver, I went and checked out a working copy of our site from CVS, to serve as the fodder for the webserver to serve up. Doing this created many CVS/Root files that have my username embedded in the :pserver: line.
Now when someone else wants to work on the development box, and they try to do a cvs command, cvs looks at the line in CVS/Root before it looks at the person's own CVSROOT environment variable. Thus, it always thinks the other person is me. Is there a way to get this "search order" reversed? The workaround is for people to use the -d parameter to cvs, which is annoying (although one guy just used an alias to get around it).
This box has CVS 1.10.8 installed.
