I'm the admin of a CVS server that's currently at 1.11.17. I'm considering upgrading to 1.12.13, and want to minimise the chances of unpleasant surprises. I've tried a 1.12.13 installation on another server, with a snapshot of my repository copied from my main CVS server, and didn't find anything too scary. However, before taking the plunge for real, I just want to clarify one point:

Are there any changes in the format of the actual repository files (eg "myfile,v") between 1.11 and 1.12? I'm thinking of a hypothetical (and probably unlikely) situation where I upgrade from 1.11 to 1.12, run with it for a while, and then for some reason decide to revert to the old 1.11 setup. Will cvs-1.11 have any trouble dealing with commits that were done with cvs-1.12?
