What does the HEAD verision mean? From what I can see, I get the latest version on the "customer1" branch if there is a version on the "maint_1" branch, but if there isn't, I get the 1.1 version. I thought I would get the latest version checked in or something like that. I can't realy see the point in getting latest version to leveles up. How is the proper way to deal with branching like this? Should I update the module to see the "maint_1" branch, and then only update the files I'm working on to see the "bugfix" branch? I find this a bit strange. I would realy like to update the whole module to the "bugfix" branch, and than see the latest checked in version or something, on the files that don't have the "bugfix" branch. /Trond -----Original Message----- From: cvsnt-bounces at cvsnt.org [mailto:cvsnt-bounces at cvsnt.org]On Behalf Of Tony Hoyle Sent: 10. februar 2003 12:27 To: cvsnt at cvsnt.org cvsnt downloads at march-hare.com @CVSNT on Twitter CVSNT on Facebook Subject: Re: [cvsnt] On Mon, 10 Feb 2003 12:21:01 +0100, "Trond Kvarenes" <trond at logit-systems.com> wrote: >If I have a branch from the 1.1 version called "customer1" and a branch from >"customer1" called "maint_1" and a branch from "maint_1" called "bugfix", >and use the "if no matching revision found,..." option when updating to the >"bugfix" branch, I don't get the latest version on the "maint_1" branch on >the files that hasn't got a "bugfix" branch , but the latest on the >"customer1". If i update to the maint_1 branch it shows the 1.1 version. >Why?

Which means you'll get the latest HEAD revision. AFAIK there is no option to get revisions from previous branches. If "bugfix" was really branched from "maint_1" then I'd expect all the files to be there anyway, though.
