Below is a partial list of currently known problems with pcl-cvs
Commit causes Emacs to hang
Emacs waits for the `cvs commit' command to finish before you can
do anything. If you start a background job from the loginfo file
you must take care that it closes `stdout' and `stderr' if you do
not want to wait for it. (You do that with `background-command &>-
2&>- &' if you are starting `background-command' from a `/bin/sh'
Your emacs will also hang if there was a lock file in the
repository. In this case you can type `C-g' to get control over
your emacs again.
Name clash in Emacs 19
This is really a bug in Elib or the Emacs 19 distribution. Both
Elib and Emacs 19.6 through at least 19.10 contains a file named
`cookie.el'. One of the files will have to be renamed, and we are
currently negotiating about which of the files to rename.
Commands while cvs-update is running
It is possible to type commands in the *cvs* buffer while the
update is running, but error messages is all that you will get.
The error messages should be better.
Unexpected output from CVS
Unexpected output from CVS confuses pcl-cvs. It will currently
create a bug report that you can mail to me. It should do
something more civilized.
