( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hi, Thanks for the feedback.
I did look into VCS support, and went over their mailing list archive. First of all - it is very quiet there. Second - it gives no information except "look at our examples". Well - I looked into them, and they work with a copy, after cehckout.

Now to the question - do I understand CVS, because if I do understand why won't I "checkout" before I start to work.
Well, let's just say I know CVS well enough.
If you will look into cvsweb for example, or Apache::CVS, they both work direcrly with the CVS repository, and whenever they can't - they immitate a working directory or do some "magic" to solve this problem (look into cvsweb doAnnotate, for example, where they use cvs server command).
The reasons I need a direct work with a repository are complicated (maybe another message...), but in the bottom line I need to keep live and updated branches (around 4 branches) that weight 200MB each on more then 20 machines.
Just keeping a copy of all of the branches on every machine will be a headache.

What I currently try to do is to immitate Apache request. If I will succeed I will be able to work with Apache::CVS not via the Apache.
I am not sure it is such a good idea, but I will give it a shot since it can short my development process a lot.

Any more ideas ?
Thanks,
shushu
