Compare the taxation of the single committer during the commit
with the taxing brought by an extra e-mail message to cvs sent
to all subscribers.
Well, gziped CVSROOT/modules currently is 55KB long (transfer size is 110KB,
because file have to be transferred to and then from client), so dialup
committers would kill you.... In addition, it would greatly increase
possibility of stale lock on CVSROOT/modules (Bad Thing, BTW) due to dualup
going down in the middle of transfer.
In addition to the simple database management
consideration: all pieces of a transaction should be committed at once
-- to simplify logging and roll-back, and ensure consistency...
I'm objecting to this. In addition to a valid arguments supplied by the Will
and my arguments above in your scheme cvs history of CVSROOT/modules will be
bloated with unnecessary description of each port added.
