Description Keith Seitz 2004-11-18 17:35:21 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20041001

Description of problem:
Once a file is committed, the keyword substitution cannot be altered.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add :ext:tomato.toronto.redhat.com:/home/handcock/eclipse-test-cvsroot
2. Create new HelloWorld-type project
3. Create new HelloWorld class, add simple System.out.println call in main
4. Share project in cvs (Team->Share Project)
5. Add another System.out.println to HelloWorld
6. Create patch, saving into workspace, HelloWorld/test.patch.
7. Share this new file (Team->Add to Version Control)
8. Change to ASCII; right-click test.patch, Team->Change ASCII/Binary
9. Choose "ASCII without keyword substitution (-ko)". Click next.
10. Select "Include files..."; next
11. Type in a comment; next
12. Click finish

Actual Results:  Get Error dialog:
Problems encountered setting keyword substitution
Reason: HelloWorld: cvs commit: Examining .

Expected Results:  Change keyword subst in cvs

Additional info:

Tried with BEA & IBM JVMs. Both fail.
This works fine as long as you add a new file, change it's keyword
subst, then commit. Command-line CVS does not have this limitation.
One can "cvs admin -ko FILE" to one's heart's content.
