Subject Re: Should CvsChangeLog extend AbstractCvsTask?
Date Mon, 10 Feb 2003 00:42:40 GMT
There's already a bug open on CvsChangeLog regarding it's date processing 
-- I was going to include the "upgrade" to the extension of the AbstractCvs 
class with those changes.

Is that OK, or do you want another defect logged?  I don't mind submitting 
in stages.
