I'm sorry about that.

It might have been interesting what "fsvs info <filename>" would have said.

It seems that your entry lists are messed up completely. Maybe because you had
them committed some time.

Please run "fsvs sync-repos" on the clients (possibly with a revision
parameter) - that should re-build a clean entry list from the repository.

Well, what are the alternatives?
For simple versioning you could use git - but that uses a local repository (=>
space), or svn (not that space-efficient, too) - or mercurial or ... ?

Alone that multiple URLs can be overlayed (a base, and a machine-specific) is
a major point for FSVS, which (AFAIK) no other product has.

That's understandable.

Don't think so.

Don't think so, either - my guess is the local entry-list.

No. None that I know of.

Well, let's try with "sync-repos"; if that's not enough we could do a debug
session some evening (for me)/afternoon (for you) [since we've got 7hrs
difference].

You're welcome. Nothings too much if you're striving for world dominance ;-)
