  Why is there no progress bar while CVS operations are under way?

We could have a progress bar when sending requests and data to the CVS server. That's missing — mea culpa.

But for the data being sent back from the server to the client (the responses), the client cannot determine how much data will be sent overall (the server doesn't tell it).

There could be progress bars on a per file basis. Those are not very useful though. The progress bar should tell you how long you have to wait for the current command to be completed and not how long one sub step (receiving one file) takes.

Under these circumstances, I opted for no progess bars at all. Let me know whether there's just no way you can do without a sending progress bar.

I'm thinking of a spinning cursor instead.
