Package: cvsps
Version: 2.0rc1-4
Severity: normal

Hello Marcus,

I cannot make cvsps --root to work

Documentation say:

       --root <cvsroot>
              Override the setting of  CVSROOT  (overrides  working  dir.  and

So I would expect the two command below to be equivalent:

cvsps -x --root /home/cvs pari
CVSROOT=/home/cvs cvsps -x pari 

but only the second actually work, the fist fail with:

WARNING: malformed CVS version: no data
WARNING: malformed CVS version str: (UNKNOWN CLIENT)
WARNING: Your CVS client version:
and/or server version:
are too old to properly support the rlog command.
This command was introduced in 1.11.1.  Cvsps
will use log instead, but PatchSet numbering
may become unstable due to pruned empty

cvs log: No CVSROOT specified!  Please use the `-d' option
cvs [log aborted]: or set the CVSROOT environment variable.

(What I attempt to do is to run cvsps on the CVS server without
any checked out repository) The cvs pserver run on woody, but 
cvsps run in a sid chroot (but should pot use the pserver anyway).

So is it a bug, or did I misunderstand the purpose of --root ?
