The following files in openide/src/org/openide/util/:
are "alive" (state Exp) in the CVS trunk; but their ,v files are stored in the
Attic/ subdirectory in the CVS repository. This is an inconsistent state
according to the CVS documentation. In particular, checking out this directory
from scratch does *not* check out these files (because CVS does not see them in
the main directory in the repository), though I have a checkout of them which is
up-to-date and "cvs up" works as expected with them.
If you explicitly list them to "cvs up" then it will check them out, but if you
just check out the directory it will not.
This means that builds of the IDE are currently missing these files. I believe
the IDE will still work for a while without them, but it must be fixed very
Unfortunately I do not recall exactly what I did to produce this situation. The
files were formerly deleted; I readded them in a trunk checkout, I think by
using cvs up, but maybe cvs add; made some changes from the last live versions;
and checked them in. The checkin command seemed to proceed normally (saying
checking in 1.6 and so on), and cvs log looks fine except that the repository
files are in the Attic.
I have tried making dummy changes to the files and checking in these changes,
which works, but they are still in the Attic.
mv CharacterArrayCharacterIterator.java,v <<other 6>> ..
which should restore the repository to a consistent state.
