    Hi- if I attempt to CVS/Release a directory whose name contains spaces, I get the error:

        {directory name} is not a directory

    Is this a bug? Apologies if I've missed something, I'm relatively new to linux/cvs/tkcvs.

    TkCVS 8.0.4

      It's a bug.  Filenames with spaces are foreign to unix, and they're a huge pain in the ***.  Problems tend to be found one-by-one, and here's a combination of an infrequently-used function (CVS Release) with an infrequent scenario (directory name with space.)  I'll fix the bug as soon as I can.

      Fixed and checked into CVS.  I wish they were all that easy.

      Thanks again. But if I attempt to browse the code in CVS using the 'Browse CVS Repository' link http://tkcvs.cvs.sourceforge.net/tkcvs on the project Code page, I get the message shown below. This is both in Windows XP using the latest Firefox and Linux (CentOS) using Firefox 1.5:

      An Exception Has Occurred

      The root "tkcvs" is unknown. If you believe the value is correct, then please double-check your configuration.

        I don't know what SourceForge's problem is, but if you're in a hurry you can go to http://tksvn.tigris.org/svn/tksvn/trunk and get the latest out of SVN there.  I'm using that as my development repository these days.
