That Explains It >

Hey, Future Leonard: Need to retroactively change a CVS commit message? Take a tip from Dan Rall:

cvs admin -m "#.##:`cat /path/to/new/commit/message`" path/to/affected/file

Where #.## is the version number for the file.

If you need to retroactively change a CVS commit message for a commit that affected more than one file, you are doomed to repeat that action for every file. A little utility script would be useful here.
