Putting a tag on a file is just that, telling CVS that this revision belongs to a tagged set. It does not move you anywhere at all. Then after you do a few commits the tag will be a few revision back in history. Example: rev 1.6 tag TAG1A rev 1.7 rev 1.8 rev 1.9 Now update to TAG1A In the working file set you have a file with a sticky tag TAG1A. It is still on the main branch (TRUNK). If you edit this file and want to commit it, CVS has nowhere to put it! The revision of teh file is 1.6 so the edited file should become 1.7, but that is already in use! And CVS cannot put the new commit as revision 1.10 either, because it is not decending from 1.9. So you get an error message.... If you want to work on an earlier file and commit then you must put it as a branch. Update to the tag, then create the branch off this revision, then update to the branch and then edit/comit/edit/commit. When you are done you can merge the branch back to the TRUNK. It will then become the new head after merging with the head of the trunk. /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
