CVS server problems

Posted on November 11th 2002

Too many people have asked this, so here’s the answer for everyone:

Because of some bug in CVS 1.11.2 server, if you connect with older clients and use -z option, it hangs at the end. Everything is transferred, but it just gets stuck there. So your options are: a) ignore and just hit Ctrl-C, b) upgrade to CVS 1.11.2, c) don’t use -z option, d) try to get CVS authors to fix it - this is not a new problem.
