ARGH.... total confusion...

Hm, now I am confused. It's about 
xc/programs/Xserver/hw/xfree86/common/xf86.h in HEAD.

I did "cvs update xf86.h" before editing the file (I inserted one line).

Then I did "cvs commit xf86.h", as the cvscommit message shows.

Now, shockingly I see

   Revision      Changes    Path
   1.2           +414 -709  xc/programs/Xserver/hw/xfree86/common/xf86.h

And in ViewCVS

"Changes since 1.1: +414 -709 lines"

The file with version 1.1 (Nov 14, 2003?!?!?!?) starts with a copyright 
message from Thomas Roell.

The version I seem to have committed is copyright 1997-2003 The XFree86 
project. And it matches exactly the version in the 6.8.1 release (except 
for that single line I added, of course)

Can anyone explain what happened here?!

... and eventually revert to the previous version, if I did something 
terribly wrong?

No, I have not been drinking...
