Re: CVS commit fails when I give path along with file name

Found the cause of the problem and the solution.
Problem was that CVS/Root directory had :local: before the CVSROOT
path (i.e., :local:/proddemo)
Removed the :local: and it works fine now.

Forgot to mention earlier that, I am creating the branch, using cvs
tag. So there was no flaw in my steps (I guess)

To Summarize:

1. Checked out module (I used cvs -d :local:/proddemo <module>)
2. Modified file
3. Removed :local: from all the CVS/Root files (just to avoid getting
confused later with same msg)
4. did the commit

Step 3 is what I added to my prev. steps

It would be helpful for me if anyone could explain as how this :local:
was effecting the commit on the branch.
