I thought I did.

There is already directory scanning code (or there used to be) that
autoexcludes a number of items such as "CVS, .cvsignore, etc..." Why can't
you use that?

I guess my point is and my complaint is that CVS is not going to be our only
revision control software (see: <>) and making
special cases for a directory called "CVS" all over the code is really bad
as when tools like Subversion are ready, you will now have "SVN" as a
directory name. 

It should be centralized somewhere. How you do the centralization is up to
you and this group to decide. :-)


Honk if you love peace and quiet.
