Humm, I see. I've just removed emacs directory and done:

$ cvs -z3 co emacs

And now I'm getting to commit using:

$ cvs -z3 ci -m "COMMENT" FILES...

It seems all ok now.

Is it related to the december CVS changes?

What does CVS/Root contains?

I'm an Emacs developer (login viniciusjl) and I'm not getting to commit my local changes to Emacs CVS.

When I try to commit a file, I get the following message:

$ cd emacs/lisp
$ cvs -z3 ci -m "Adjust X-URL" printing.el
Permission denied (publickey).
cvs [commit aborted]: end of file from server (consult above messages if any)

But I get to check-in, see:

$ cd work
$ cvs -z3 co emacs
Enter passphrase for key '/home/vinicius/.ssh/id_dsa':
cvs checkout: Updating emacs
cvs checkout: Updating emacs/1

I also notice that I can do:

$ cd emacs/lisp
$ cvs -z3 ci -m "Adjust X-URL" delim-col.el
Enter passphrase for key '/home/vinicius/.ssh/id_dsa':
/sources/emacs/emacs/lisp/delim-col.el,v <-- delim-col.el
new revision: 1.14; previous revision: 1.13
Mailing notification to sent.
Mailing diffs to 1 sent.

So, what am I missing?

Have the command line to commit changed?

I always used "cvs -z3 ci -m "COMMENT" FILES..." to commit.

Could anyone help me?

Thanks in advance,


Vinicius Jose Latorre <viniciusjl>
