I don't think any of the Fedora infrastructure uses branches in the
traditional way that would cause -A to end up switching branches. If,
however -A blows away for example -ko or -kb settings from the repository,
then it's actively harmful (I don't think it does, though). It will also
interfere with working on traditional branches if one creates them in Fedora
CVS, ditto with any other project that uses such branches one might be
working on. Personally there's no way I'd want -A for "update" in my .cvsrc.

No.

Not really. However, Tibbs' advise to add -A to ~/.cvsrc is pretty
harmful to anybody who seriously uses CVS.

Temporarily using -A (e.g. on the command-line), e.g. in cases such as
Fedora checkouts, is OK.

I do checkouts by timestamp often enough and don't want them to
stick.

Whoops! Thanks for catching that. I'll add that tidbit to the SOP.
