I think that this 'problem' is a CVS issue rather than CVSNT. Basically what you refer to as 'comment' is the log message that you can enter on a commit to explain what was done. This information is stored with the individual *changed* files when you do the commit. When you 'tag' a module then what you do is that you put a text marker in *all* files in the module at the revision they are currently in no matter if they have changed recently or not. This tag is used so that you later can retrieve the same set of files in the same revision level they had when the tag was put there. Also the tags are stored in the individual files on the server. Now, what you ask for is a way to add both a comment and the tag at the same time so that a descriptive text can be associated with the tag and help out later when viewing the tag to decide which tag is relevant for update. I don't think that such a feature exists in CVS and if it is introduced in CVSNT chances are that the RCS files will become non-compatible with the general CVS system. Maybe Tony Hoyle can comment on this? Anyway, until such time you will have to make your tags more descriptive by themselves, like March_16_Devel_Beta5 or similar. /Bo -----Original Message----- From: Arvind Raman [mailto:arvind_raman_tech at yahoo.com] Sent: den 18 april 2002 11:38 To: CVSNT Subject: [Cvsnt] issue regarding comments and tags Hi, I had a seemingly trivial issue regarding comments and tags. When I commit modified files to the database Cvs gives me an option to associate a comment with the changes made. If I commit only the modified files and not the entire directory structure Cvs only associates the comments with the modified files ; which is agreeable. Now when I assign a tag to the root of the directory structure Cvs doesn't give me any option of asigning a comment there. I have a habit of assigning tags as 1_0,1_1,1_2 etc. Now if I would like to know why the version 1_2 was created or what specific purpose it served, I have no way of knowing it except for possibly looking at the comments which were assigned while checking in the files. Isn't it possible to assign a comment specifically with the tags. Would appreciate any help or suggestions. This is a feature which I guess most of the commercial version control systems have.
