Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.

It sounds like you want to do branching, which allows developers to work in
parallel, instead of retrieving previous versions.  The sticky tag appears
when you check out a file at a specific revision level but you shouldn't do
that if you intend to be able to check that file back in again.

Read up on the CVS documentation about branching and merging.  



Always reply to the list, not me directly.  Others may be able to answer or
benefit from the q/a.
