Re: Disabling -n option to commit/rtag

I definintely can trust the developers, and would do that, but unfortunately
some of the IDE's use the -n option on their own sometimes.  My specific
example is Jalindi Igloo, which we are using with MS Visual C++.  It is a
great tool, but sometimes it uses the -n option....thus bypassing my
scripts.  I am hoping that CVS integration with some of our other IDE's
(Borland JBuilder, Forte, Websphere, et. al.) don't also use this option...
If they do, I may have to try to modify the source...  Any other suggestions
will be greatly appreciated though!!
