Description Luke Mewburn 2004-08-24 03:31:46 UTC
People who use CVS to maintain a local copy of samba will notice that by default
"cvs import" will ignore the examples/autofs/auto.a file because the `.a' suffix
is in the default cvs ignore list.  There is a workaround (cvs -I\!), but it
strikes me as unnecessary given that `.a' is traditionally used as the extension
for (library) archives, so I recommend renaming this example file in the samba

sorry for the same, cleaning up the database to prevent unecessary reopens of bugs.
