Subject: [PATCH] cvsimport: apply shell-quoting regex globally
Date: Fri, 8 Dec 2017 04:58:19 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Commit 5b4efea666 (cvsimport: shell-quote variable used in
backticks, 2017-09-11) tried to shell-quote a variable, but
forgot to use the "/g" modifier to apply the quoting to the
whole variable. This means we'd miss any embedded
single-quotes after the first one.
