Subject .cvsignore lines breaking re-import
Date Tue, 17 Aug 1999 17:00:26 GMT

In the midst of moving data from CVSup'd Apache source into our own 
CVS repository, I have had several .cvsignore files bite me. I am not
very familiar with the .cvsignore files, but I thought you might want
to be aware of this issue.

    contains 'Makefile.*' which means that when I do an export from CVSup 
    and then import into our CVS tree I lose the Makefile.tmpl file.
    same issue as above except this .cvsignore contains '*'. which seemed
    to have caused the directory to be ignored entirely. which caused an
    --add-module to fail on the copy to the non-existant extra directory.
...possibly others.

I have added the missing files back in manually, but somewhat defeats the
purpose of a distribution import.
