I have sup & cvs scripts which sup the kernel source, and then import the
cnages to the local repository. When I go to merge these changes into my
checked out tree, I see some stuff which puzzles me:
I type: cvs co -jNetBSD:yesterday -jNetBSD sys
and the checkout begins.
Some files (like sys/compat/linux/linux_file.c today) go by with a
Ok. It updated that file.
Some files, though get rcs messages, like sys/conf/files:
RCS file: /cvsroot/sys/conf/files,v
retrieving revision 188.8.131.52
retrieving revision 184.108.40.206
Merging differences between 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168 into files
and then it's fine.
I'm just confused a little.
Maybe sys/conf/files was a bad choice as I might have changed my local
copy. But I've seen these messages with some files, and then I do a diff
between the checked-out file and the file in the sup tree, and they are
the same. ??
It's been a while since I actually checked stuff into my local tree. Could
that be part of the problem?
