I apologize if I'm pointing out the obvious and/or something you've
already tried.

After reading the manual I understand that the ${AUTOREV} method is
not working with cvs. Is there an alternative approach to instruct the
fetcher to always perform an update/checkout from the repository?

According to the bitbake documentation, if you specify a revision of
"now" will cause a fresh checkout on every build. Is that the same as
the "AUTOREV method"?


def need_update(self, url, ud, d):
if ( == "now"):
return True
if not os.path.exists(ud.localpath):
return True
return False
