What you refer to as version numbers are not! They are revision numbers and is what keeps CVS going. They are strictly for CVS internal use and has *nothing* whatever to do with your software release versions. In order to administrate the versions you should use the 'tag' method by tagging all files in your module at the same time with a tag like 'Ver1-0-2-45' or similar. This binds all those files together on this version and you can later retrieve them as an entity. And don't ever try to remove old revisions, you will create a hole in hostory and you are effectively changing the past. Just leave the revision there, it causes no ill effects at all. Remember that all revisions of a file are saved in one and the same RCS file on the server, so there are no extra files to remove. /Bo (Bo Berglund, developer in Sweden) _______________________________________________ Cvsnt mailing list Cvsnt at cvsnt.org http://www.cvsnt.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/cvsnt https://www.march-hare.com/cvspro/en.asp#downcvs
