Description Dan Mahoney 2011-01-11 00:10:06 UTC
CVS-devel port (1.12.13_9) currently coredumps when tagging a release.

Per a developer, this is due to an argument parsing a file in myndbm.c:

"The FreeBSD man page says the first argument (line) will be treated as NULL if line_size == 0.  It is == 32 in my core dump"

Fix: Simple one line patch:

%diff -u ./work/cvs-1.12.13/src/myndbm.c.orig  ./work/cvs-1.12.13/src/myndbm.c
Build cvs-devel from source, attempt to tag a release.  It will coredump.
