Description jbfaden 2007-02-27 21:26:56 UTC
Is there a reason why the CVS commit dialog must be modal?  I'd like to be able
to refer back to code while documenting the commit.

There is no strong reason for its modality. However, once it is non-modal there
can be multiple commit dialogs open with different sets of files in them. Also,
the dialog is not 'live' in the sense that it does not update its list of files
once it is displayed hence having it open for a long time does not make sence.
Your usecase is valid though so if UI guys agree we can make it non-modal with
drawbacks I outlined above. 
HIE opinion?
