SO in other words, Microsoft published an interface API that feature matches VSS. You as a developer as welcome to implement that API for your own source code control system, but much the API might not make sense. VSS and CVS are very different from a methodology perspective. For example, there is no such thing as checking in or out of a file. Thus, offering this API doesn't really help me if I still have to use a CVS client to do my work. -Matt > -----Original Message----- > From: thelist-admin at lists.evolt.org [mailto:thelist-admin at lists.evolt.org] > On Behalf Of kevin D. white > Sent: Thursday, May 09, 2002 11:34 AM > To: thelist at lists.evolt.org > Subject: Re: [thelist] Dw MX concensus > > -----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- > > Because the SCC API is implemented by client app & not the Server app. > This is true for all source-control systems that support SCC.
