When I import files into my own private CVS, then copy new files over my original files, I end up having to check files whose only difference is the $Id:$ line:
Index: chameleon/common.css =================================================================== RCS file: /home/upacvs/website/themes/chameleon/common.css,v retrieving revision 188.8.131.52 diff -r184.108.40.206 common.css 1c1 < /* $Id: common.css,v 220.127.116.11 2004/08/27 18:22:29 kitt Exp $ */ --- > /* $Id: common.css,v 1.7 2004/08/20 09:34:52 dries Exp $ */
A script that checks these are the only changes, then
discards the new file (and does a CVS up to get the old
current version), would be perfect for this case.
