So \*that's\* what's going on16 Jun 2007
For a while now I've been irritated with the behaviour of OpenRCS and
Emacs on my OpenBSD machines: every time I try to check out a file
kept in RCS, using
C-x v v (
vc-next-action), I still have to
toggle read-only status on the file. Then, when I try to check it in,
it asks if I want to steal the lock from myself, and never actually
checks it in.
Finally had some time to track this down, and this bug appears to be the cause. I may have to play around with Emacs a bit to get it to ignore the permissions, or I may just use the OpenBSD package for GNU rcs instead.
