Sun 14 Aug 2011 10:14:45 AM UTC, original submission:

I have two different repos one remote, on local being rsync'd

remote runs 1.11.12
local runs 1.12.13

When I run:
$ cvs -nq update

I see no files that have been modified

$ cvs -d /var/cvsroot -nq update

I see files in my check-out tree that claim to have been modified

researching I find that in fact the keywords expansions have
in fact mods in the checked-out files, yet the cvs -nq update against the remote repo does not seem to think the file has been modified.

Is this is a feature or a bug? Something configurable on the server and local repo that I'm missing?
