        I would have thought that each developer really should have their own checked out tree. If you want to have a copy of your site for the webserver to serve then how about doing a cvs release on the tree so that it no longer has an attachment to the repository. This way your webserver serves a nightly (?) snapshot rather than the cutting edge - perhaps more useful.

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.
