[kepler-dev] repeated problems with cvs checkout

Hi Bertram,

I'm not getting that under Windows or Solaris.

Usually that means that there is already a file present.

I've seen Windows barf if a filename differs only in case.
This is because Windows is case insensitive, case preserving.
If someone checks in a file Foo.java and then renames it foo.java,
then cvs has problems under Windows.

However, I don't think this is happening here.
Perhaps try deleting the entire directories where the problem is



    I keep getting these errors at checkout (and I think Dan replied to
    this earlier): 
    Once I delete the "conflicting" files, the checkout works fine.
    The subsequent checkout (update) then reproduces the error.. 
    what is going on? (and how can we eliminate that?)
