Subject RE: now and in next year ... [Re: Change CVS module names (Next w eek)]
Date Mon, 08 Sep 2003 14:04:40 GMT

A quick question on this change.

If I have xml-axis/java/foo.txt checked out and this name change goes through, do I still
(according to the server CVS file) have ws-axis/java/foo.txt checked out?

I would just have to change my local CVS files, per Sams perl script, and I should be OK?

I am -0 on doing it quick.  Sometimes pulling the Band-Aid(TM) off quick really does hurt
more than doing it slowly. :-)
