1.31.1.  RHBA-2009:1370: bug fix update

An updated CVS package that fixes two bugs is now available.
Concurrent Version System (CVS) is a version control system that can record the history of your files.
This updated package fixes the following two bugs:
  • mismatches between hosts sometimes caused the CVS client to present incorrect credentials to servers with gserver authentication. This update ensures the correct credentials are supplied by confirming the IP address of the currently-connected server so that host mismatch does not occur. (BZ#473245)
  • attempting to process large numbers of files with long names caused problems with some scripts due to lengthy command line arguments. This problem has been resolved by adding the possibility of passing arguments through standard input. (BZ#462062)
All users of cvs are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which resolves these issues.
