Description ken_laird 2002-06-14 11:40:40 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/20020513

Description of problem:
According to the CVS documentation, the export command should just
extract files from a repository and not create a CVS subdirectory in
the local working directory.  However, version 1.11.1p1-7 does create
CVS subdirectories.  This becomes a problem if you have more than one
module that you want to export to the same local directory for packaging purposes.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a module in cvs and add some files.
2.cd to an empty local directory.
3.issue the command cvs export -D tomorrow <name of module>
4.list the directory created by cvs.

Actual Results:  a CVS subdirectory will have been created, just as if you had
used the
update or checkout command.

Expected Results:  Should have just extracted the files and not created a CVS

Bug is reproducable in Red Hat Enterprise 3 Update 2 with
cvs-1.11.2-24. Updated platform.

When exporting a module and the "-d" flag is specified to create a
source distribution, the CVS subdirs are erroniously included.
Possible problem in client.c

Probably should be updated under Enterprise Linux and all platforms.
Comment 2 Rick Johnson 2004-08-09 20:33:30 EDT
Rawhide version cvs-1.11.17-3 seems to contain a fix in client.c that
resolves this problem. Any chance this could be backported to RHEL 3?
Comment 3 Martin Stransky 2005-03-10 07:38:22 EST
Hmm, I couldn't reproduce it with cvs-1.11.2-25 and newer. Let me
know, if you can do it and how.
