Hi, this is great.  I have installed this on my machine, but when I go to
http://server/cgi-bin/cvsweb/ I just see the folder CVSROOT/ and in there I

somewhere that I need to enable to ensure that this goes into CVS?

I have just installed RANCID on my machine, and have it collecting data from
one firewall.  What I would like is some kind of differential on this

I have read the documentation that I can find, and cannot see anything about
keeping old versions of the log files.  The reason for wanting this is that
the firewall config often gets changed and there is the possible requirement
that we will need to roll back the config a few days.


Many thanks for any help anyone can provide.
