Sorry the file <file1> was not ears file it was properties file.
  I dont think it is because of the time stamps.
  looks like some thing related to -ko options.
  Any of you, Please do let me know what exactly is going on?

  Hi Raj,

As far as my understanding goes if the time stamp of a file changes, CVS
will consider it "different". The timestamps of the checkedout files are
stored in CVS/Entries.

Subject: Does Commit Message make a difference in the version

Hi All,
I have a file called file1 (may be foo.ears or something like that)

I committed that file into the repository from my work Space.

cvs commit 

Then I was asked to write a commit message I presse ESC key and then 
"c" for continue

file1 was committed and it formed a version 1.1

Now I copied the file again into my worsk space (which will be
over written on the old file if there is something new)

Now I tried committing this file using the command

cvs commit -m "Testing Msg version" 

To my surprise its committed and formed another version 1.2

I am just wondering how this is possible even though there is no change
in the File content.

I tried to see the difference b/w the two versions, and I could not see
any difference except the time they both were committed and the version

Please help me to know the concept. This helps me a lot.
