   Does this cause any other problems, or does it just affect log?

The main effect is that a cvs update in that directory will not pick
up any newly added files.  That will catch you by surprise after a
while, so I wouldn't recommend leaving the Entries.Static files around
forever.

       Concurrent Versions System (CVS) 1.10.3 (client/server)

   I couldn't imagine cvs was so broken as to do what it is doing, so I
   concluded I was doing something wrong.  Can I share this email with the
   hackers list?

CVS is a long aggregation of hacks.  Heck, the first version was a
bunch of shell scripts.  Since there is no theory underlying CVS, it's
easy to get the corner cases wrong unless you test them.  I would
guess that the author of the current cvs log implementation didn't
test this sort of thing.  (The author in question was, um, me,
although I think I might be able to blame John Gilmore for this
particular feature.)

Yes, please go ahead and share these e-mail messages if you like.

By the way, I gather you spoke with Nathan Meyers at the free database
summit.  I'm co-founder and CTO of Zembu, where he works.

Ian
