Um. I mean that I've read the manual, but my developers, whose only
purpose is to sit and code Java more slowly than I could COBOL (note
that I don't *know* COBOL), who I have using CVS because it saves me
a lot of grief when they do something dumb and I can come up with
the previous version, won't use -ko reliably.

(I guess, "unless I force them to by way of editing their dot files
for them." And I suppose I shouldn't have that silly code of ethics
about not mucking about with users' files, right?)

I do hope you were being at least a little funny in the above on
purpose, Greg... you're not really *that* detached from the real
world, are you?

Accepted. Remember that I'm saying all this as Devil's Advocate. (I
don't have this problem myself. Mostly because the previous sysadmin
at my place of work so screwed up the CVS server set-up as to make
the developers refuse to use it, a situation I have yet to rectify.)
