Re: "cvs commit" features

Of course, a user can always use "cvs add" and "cvs remove" to add or remove
files, but these two options can help him/her make sure they didn't forget
to do this for some of the files.

This is one of those things that might work really well, but only for certain development models. For instance, I am using a GUI based tool. It likes to create lots of files that may or may not need to be archived. I have experimentally determined that if I archive a certain set of them, then there seems to be no problems. Do I want CVS to pester me about the ones I'm not archiving every time I do a commit in that directory? No way!

In my application which takes the output of cvs the user can choose between
add, remove and ignore the file. If ignore is selected the name is written into
the .cvsignore file so next time cvs won't ask about it again.
