Description Petr.Salinger 2006-02-21 09:10:33 UTC
I am not sure whether it is the right place to submit this type of bug, anyway

With move of linuxthreads into ports, CVS shoul be available via

It gives following error:

Error: Failed to spawn GNU rlog on '/cvs/glibc/ports/linuxthreads//ecmutex.c,v,

did you set the $ENV{PATH} in your configuration file correctly ?

This could be the ACLs, or a cvsweb setup problem.  I've asked overseers to take
a look.
Comment 3 Daniel Jacobowitz 2006-02-21 18:24:52 UTC
Hi Roland,

I checked with overseers about this.  The problem appears to be the missing
"symbols;" keyword in the RCS files; readd it and rlog is happy again.  I am
guessing that this is a side effect of the way you remove branches and tags when
copying RCS files to ports.

If that's all it is, I can readd the missing symbols tags, but you might also
want to fix whatever script pruned the old tags... or did you do that through CVS?
Comment 4 Roland McGrath 2006-02-22 01:46:51 UTC
Apparently cvsweb has its own ideas of what RCS files look like, beyond what RCS
and CVS actually require.
Comment 5 Roland McGrath 2006-02-22 01:56:48 UTC
I've fixed the RCS files and cvsweb seems to be happy now.
Comment 6 Daniel Jacobowitz 2006-02-22 02:04:17 UTC
FWIW, Jonathon's experiment suggests that the error message was literal:
whatever is installed as "rlog" was unhappy, so probably GNU RCS.
