Subject I received a great surprise from Continuum!
Date Tue, 13 Mar 2007 17:45:24 GMT
I just wanted to say thanks for an unexpected feature that Continuum  
has.  At one client site we are building around 30 different projects  
from CVS.  Over the weekend the DNS name of the CVS server was  
changed as part of a corporate renaming process.   I expected to have  
to go and update each projects CVS\Root file, as well as update the  
CVS checkout information in Continuum.

I started by updating one project in Continuum, and then when I went  
onto the filesystem I couldn't find the previously checked out  
project!  It turned out that Continuum was smart enough to pick up  
the changed SCM information, and to remove the currently checked out  
code and replace it with the new code!

This is one of those features that I wouldn't have expected  
Continuum, especially at the 1.0.3 version's level of maturity, to
