my oops

really running 1.11.19 (logged into different host).  based on the fact
that the last version is 1.11.22, I guess the filters aren't
implemented yet.

I do think it is a great idea.

Anyone know anything about this?

Another thing:

I do have the cvswrappers file set to use COPY versus MERGE by doing
*.mss -k 'b' -m COPY
but the cvs archive file is still showing a "diff"-like content for
previous commits.  I expected each rev to be a "new" copy of the binary
file.  CVS did know to add the file as binary without specifically
indicating -kb on the commit command.

Am I expecting the wrong behaviour with COPY, or does it always "diff"?
