We're trying to upgrade our webwork 2-1-patches installation ro version 2.2. We use CVS to do this. When we try to do a cvs update we get errors. It turns out that this is because our webwork Root is:

instead of

Because all out CVS/Root files refer to ext instead of pserver, we're unable to do a cvs upgrade. My question is how do we proceed from here.

Do we have to edit all CVS/Root files and enter the second line above in place of the first? Or is there a better way?

Thanks, Lars.

Hi Lars,

The :ext: method should still work if it worked in the past. If not, the workaround is to change all the CVS/Root files. Here's a quick way to do so:

find . -regex '.*/CVS/Root' -print0 | xargs -0 perl -pi -e 's/^:ext:/:pserver:/'

Hope this helps.
