With cvs 1.10 and local repository access, if you modified files in dir A and dir B, and then checked them in from the root of the project (without -m), you would be prompted with your editor of choice for check-in comments for the changes *for each directory*. What I mean is, you would be prompted for dir A, you would close your editor, and then you would be prompted for dir B. When we switched to using rsh access to a server, this went away, and we were instead prompted one time for all changes to all directories. We just moved to 1.12.10, and I really thought during the testing using the new info format strings that I saw it prompting per directory once, but I can't get it to do it again, so I must have just missed something. My question is: is this behavior (prompting per directory versus once for all directories) configurable or is there otherwise some set of conditions that trigger one over the other? I actually prefer the per directory commenting of the two.
