Certainly it is.  You're trying to do something well outside of CVS's
capabilities; this is why kernel development moved to bitkeeper, which
has better support for slaving private repositories from others, and
moving change-sets between those workspaces.

I'd either find a way to minimize or stop having multiple outstanding
and inter-related changes sets across multiple projects [!], or use a
different RCS ... however, since you're not going to be able to get
those other projects to use bitkeeper, you're not going to see much of a

You may also want to look into the collection of change-control scripts
that linas and others were using before the BK switchover.
