Subject Removal of $Id$
Date Thu, 17 Jun 2004 18:48:45 GMT
To date, we've been very dilligent about putting $Id$ in our source files.

I think that this is a mistake and am starting to remove them.

Why?  As David Thomas points out in "Pragmattic Version Control", the $Id$ tag adds no real
usefulness and the data therein is always available from CVS and/or the IDE.  On the other
hand, it
causes pain whenever trying to merge versions of a file, such as porting into our out of a
branch.
