Hi Aric My experience with renaming branch tags is not encouraging; I never got in contact with the branch again :-( My advise is: Leave it alone Regards, anders -----Original Message----- From: Czarnowski, Aric [mailto:aczarnowski at unimax.com] Sent: 29. maj 2002 21:26 To: cvsnt (E-mail) Subject: [Cvsnt] Renaming a tag - will this work? We have been developing an application for a while on a branch with a poorly chosen name we moved over from an old PVCS repository. The branch is called MM214 and it represented what was to become the 2.1.4 version of the app. Now that we have released the 2.1.4 code and used CVS for a long enough to be comfortable with it I would like to change the branch name to fit better with CVS usage. Basically, I'd like to do something like: cvs renametag MM214 MM (rename the MM214 tag to the more general MM) cvs tag -r MM MM214 (place the release tag for the 2.1.4 version over the MM branch) I've done some testing and I think this set of CVS commands will work for the fictitious "cvs renametag" above while preserving branch points and histories: cvs admin -N MM:MM214 cvs tag -d MM214 I would then reapply the MM214 tag as a simple tag in keeping with what I understand to be the common way CVS tags are used to mark releases (MM214) along development branches (MM). Are there any problems here that I am missing? Is there another way to do this?
