#2635 long-term lock on directory in ECB project


I've tried doing a CVS update on my local fileset twice now this morning. Things go well until I get to


at which point I get the following:

 cvs update: [15:41:17] waiting for anoncvs_ecb's lock in /cvsroot/ecb/ecb/ecb-images/directories

CVS rechecks every 30 sec. Right now it's been checking for 17 minutes. I previously tried an hour or more ago. Wondering if you have a hung lock here.

FWIW, the CVS command is:

 In C:\Program Files\gnu\emacs-24.2\site-lisp\ecb: "C:\Program Files\CVSNT\cvs.exe" -q update -P -d

    Hmm, if recent instances of similar issues are any indication, this can actually be fixed by a developer commit, but since you are not a developer on that project, I'm escalating this to our operations team to see if they can get this lock removed.
