From: Ann Barcomb Date: 12:18 on 25 Aug 2003 Subject: I hate CVS There are many reasons why I hate CVS. The annoying process for removing files (remove the file, then do a cvs remove--if you didn't think to type both commands before executing the first one, you'll actually have to type the name of the file) which is the opposite of the process for removing directories (do a cvs remove, then remove the directory); the lack of support for moving files and directories; and the fact that I always manage to mess things up and edit files that aren't meant to be edited. But what I am specifically hating today is that it aborts when a file is unknown instead of simply skipping a commit. For example, I have perhaps 10 directories--uk, ie, nl, no and so on. In each of these directories there are perhaps up to 5 files which I have modified and want to commit if they exist. What I want to do is 'cvs commit */file1 */file2 */file3 */file4 */file5'. However, this is impossible, and if there is a flag I can give it to make it shut up and simply commit files which exist and ignore others, I haven't found it (not that I've ever bothered to read all the documentation...I keep hoping something will rescue me from needing to know too much about CVS).

That should have read: manage to mess things up and as a consequence have to edit files that aren't meant to be edited. It wuold be hard to blame the software if I touch things that shouldn't be touched.
