#4044 Commits from the summer of 2011 missing from CVS

CVS (14)
Peter Rosin


On the 25th of March 2013 I noticed that config.h wasn't included
by ggi-core/libgii/input/terminfo/input.c and hence added it, see
revision 1.10 of that file, email message ID on the ggi-allmodul-cvs
list was <E1UA5wf-0003CT-LL@sfs-ml-2.v29.ch3.sourceforge.com>.

This morning, while looking in the commit mail folder, I noticed
that I had done the same change a couple of years back on the 18th
of April 2011, email message ID on the ggi-allmodul-cvs list was

So, I looked a little closer and noticed that my commit of revision
1.12 of ggi-libs/libgiigic/doc/man/Makefile.am as of the 26th of
June 2011 was also missing, message-id
<E1Qawz4-0003gm-5f@sfs-ml-2.v29.ch3.sourceforge.com>, so I redid
that as well this morning with message-id

I have looked through the ggi-allmodul-cvs list (somewhat cursory)
from about that time, but other commits in the vicinity look alright.

Looking through old SF news entries, there was a reported CVS outage
that got restored on the 21st of July 2011. But they say that they
think the window for data loss was in the minutes, and not months as
our missing commits would indicate.

What has happened? Why did the original commits disappear? Have
anything else changed? I get a bad feeling from this...

    It sounds like you were able to sort out what is needed for your project, as this is from quite some time ago with no similar complaints, I don't think it would be worth the time for our team to spend more time on this.
