RE: Make cvs ignore some changes in files

I used to control a project with CORBA idl files.  The idl would get
"compiled" into c source files and headers, with the only difference being
the line with the time/date stamp.  Usually, if the diff reported this as
the only difference, I just re-synced the work area with the version in the
repository.  Since your process is automated, perhaps you can use expect or
some similar tool to make the same decision.
