i'm having the following problem when trying to run the cvs checkout
buildstep from step.py on a windows client:
apparently, with windows, the cvs command is not called directly, but
treated like a shell commands step, thus executed as "cmd.exe /c cvs ...".
this leads to cmd.exe not resolving the source stamp argument ( -D)
correctly and passing each part of the date to the cvs command as a
the result is the cvs command not being able to check out module
"Monday" etc. , of course.
is there a way to get the cvs command being called directly, not via
another way - probalby better - would be to quote the source stamp.
btw, quote from the cvs manual:
"Remember to quote the argument to the -D flag so that your shell
doesn't interpret spaces as argument separators."
