A few meg still qualifies as a "large" file in my book, but the net
result is the same: the only way CVS can modify a file is by making a
temporary copy and then replacing the original file and the copy must be
in the same directory. If you're going to have large files in your
repository, you need to have lots of disk space.
Is it too much to ask for an occasional token gesture of appreciation?!
