Wrap calls to CVS inside a temporary directory
Review Request #295 — Created March 13, 2008 and submitted
One mailing list user had problems with CVS, which seems to write a .cvsignore file to disk even though we use -p to write to stdout. This seems to break running reviewboard under apache. I don't know whether this actually fixed the problem or not, I just wanted to store the patch somewhere so it doesn't get lost. Update: Added new diff based on comments on diff 1.
I've run the unit tests before and after, works without problems. I haven't been able to receive the same problem as the original op, hence I have no idea whether this actually changes anything :)
