A week ago I posted this on jython-dev, but no-one was able to give any advise on the best way to fix it. Maybe you can help.
For some time now, our [jython] web CVS have not worked correctly:
Finally I managed to track the problem to the Java2Accessibility.py,v file in the CVS repository. The "rlog" command cannot be executed on this file.
From the start of the Java2Accessibility.py,v:
head 2.4; access; symbols Release_2_1alpha1:2.4 Release_2_0:2.2 Release_2_0rc1:2.2 Release_2_0beta2:2.2 Release_2_0beta1:2.2 Release_2_0alpha3:2.2 Release_2_0alpha2:2.2 Release_2_0alpha1:2.2 Release_1_1rc1:2.2 Release_1_1beta4:2.2 Release_1_1beta3:2.2 2.0:18.104.22.168; locks; strict;
As an experiment, I tried to remove the strange "2.0:22.214.171.124;" line from the file and then I could run rlog on the file.
Make sure to move the semicolon to the end of the previous line.
Does anyone know if/how we can fix this?
As a last resort I suppose I can attach my hand edited version to a SF support request where I ask them to copy my file to the CVS server. To this day I have never been very successful whenever I have tried to edit files in a CVS repository so I'm reluctant to do this.
Yes, I think a SF request should be the way to go.
I don't know how this could have happened; the "2.0" is illegal as a symbolic tag name...
