Subject Re: ant script just hang when checking out of CVS [Similar problem with cvstagdiff]
Date Wed, 26 Sep 2007 22:28:35 GMT

So far I have not received any responses to my
question.  Was my question too difficult to answer? 
Let me try to re-phrase my question.

Why does the cvstagdiff Ant task NOT work when I have
the CVSROOT environment variable set with the
password?  Is this a bug in Ant?  Should I request a
fix for it?

Regards,

-Saladin
