Hi Bo and others,

Thanks for the reply.
Exactly, I am trying to tag the "product" folder, but
am unable to do so. Since the "product" folder does
have sub folder which do have files in them I feel CVS
should allow me to tag the "product" directory. My
expectation is that on tagging the "product" directory
all the files in all the subfolders should get tagged.
 If the directories don't get tagged thats not an
issue I want the files in the directory to get tagged

When using the WINCVS gui, I am unable to tag the
product directory since the option was greyed out.(
The product directory doesn't have any files. It just
has subfolders which contain files.) The only option
then left with me was to tag the "src" and the
"include" directory individually.

Isn;t there a better way of tagging?

Thanks and regards

You mean by labelling the tagging procedure, right?
And yes it is recursive if you use WinCvs and select a
folder in the
folder view to the left you will tag all files and
subfolders from
that node.

But CVS does not version folders, only files. So if
you have empty
folders these are simply not in the repsoitory.
