 Its not the symlink it self, i store in my repository, its the symlinked

 I have only files in my repository, without any symlinks! But i have
 many symlinks in the directory where i checked out my source tree.

 What im interested in having cvs to look at the timestamp of files
 those which my links point to. My problem is that cvs is looking at
 the symlinks timestamp.

I think you're still expressing yourself badly, because if the symlinks
aren't in the repository, then cvs isn't looking at them *at all*. Maybe
you should post a *short* example of the problem you are seeing, with
the actual output of CVS and 'ls -l' of the individual files/links.

If the symlinks are in his sandbox, then cvs update will look at them.

Simon, is this something like what you did?

        cvs co MODULE
        cd MODULE
        rm FILE
        ln -s /somewhere/FILE
        edit /somewhere/FILE
        cvs -n update

The problem is that cvs looks at the timestamp of MODULE/FILE and decides that it hasn't changed so it doesn't list it as updated. Is this correct?
