 	I finally found Vince Hoang's patch(*) in the archive & it did the trick 
quite nicely .  As you say I had to run 'rancid-run' twice & the error/warning 
message went away .  Everything as far as rancid is concerned so far has been 
fine .
 	Now if I could just get ViewVC(**) working so I can view the repo's 
direct it'd be great .  But it appears that rancid doesn't build a repo but uses 
working copies .  So I may have to find a differant viewer .
 	Tahnk you for responding .  JimL
