Using the MozillaBuild 1.2 RC I can't checkin with CVS. Found when trying to check in the fix for bug 409114, here was my output:

bsmedberg says bug 373304 updated CVS to 1.11.22, but due to a packaging problem, it wasn't included in MozillaBuild 1.1.  We picked it up in MozillaBuild 1.2 because we wound up fixing the packaging problem.

This also seems to be causing a bug whereby multiple recursive copies of the source tree are checked out (under mozilla/build/autoconf/) during make -f checkout.  I checked, and using /bin/cvs.exe (which is 1.11) instead of /local/bin/cvs.exe (1.11.22) makes both of these problems go away.  :-(
Apparently this has been reported before:

I'm just going to roll back to 1.11 for 1.2, and we'll look into this for 1.3.

Summary: Unable to checkin using CVS → msys cvs 1.11.22 has issues
Not really a satisfying option, but MozillaBuild 1.2 is blocking beta3, and we're no worse off shipping 1.11 again than we are with MozillaBuild 1.1.  I don't know that there's a really easy answer to this, it might fix itself if we update all our msys packages or something, but that's out of scope for 1.2.

Can we have a cvs version that also support pserver;proxy ?
Do you know what version that would be?  I would like to get a newer CVS into MozillaBuild, just that 1.11.22 from msys had a lot of bugs.
    As of CVS release 1.12.7, CVS supports connecting via HTTP proxies using "connection options" with a syntax like::

Not sure, how and when this is taken up in mingw...
We'll take another swing at this when we get around to MozillaBuild 1.3.

MozillaBuild's cvs can't do user:password check-outs either, which breaks anonymous checkouts of l10n from, which uses :-(.

Don't think I care enough about CVS anymore for this to matter in our glorious future of hg.
