Hi guys

At e.g.
we see that CVS has a default set of patters for ignoring files;
RCSLOG cvslog.*
tags TAGS
.make.state .nse_depinfo
*~ #* .#* ,* _$* *$
*.old *.bak *.BAK *.orig *.rej .del-*
*.a *.olb *.o *.obj *.so *.exe
*.Z *.elc *.ln

I have a project, where I need CVS to also consider .so-files.
How is it possible to unlearn/change the default ignore patterns?
Either in the distribution side or in user land...

At least in the versions I've used I don't know if there is a way to do that. You can override the default ignore list for cvs import operations with:

cvs import -I !

I think for non-import operations you are going to have to trust your users to add the .so files without the prompting of the CVS with ? lines in the cvs update output.

You could build yourself a custom version with a different built in ignore list without too much difficulty if that becomes a problem.
