Here is the cvs output of a status in the src dir after I have forcibly checked out a the 18.104.22.168 revision. Note that it is located in the Attic...: F:\Projects\cvsnt\src>cvs -z4 -q status -v info.c cvs status: Empty password used - try 'cvs login' with a real password =================================================================== File: info.c Status: Up-to-date Working revision: 22.214.171.124 Repository revision: 126.96.36.199 /usr/local/cvs/cvsnt/src/Attic/info.c,v Sticky Tag: 188.8.131.52 Sticky Date: (none) Sticky Options: (none) Existing Tags: CVSNT_1_11_1_3_65 (revision: 184.108.40.206) CVSNT_1_11_1_3_64 (revision: 220.127.116.11) CVSNT_1_11_1_3_63 (revision: 18.104.22.168) CVSNT_1_11_1_3_REL (branch: 1.1.2) After I got this out this strange way I was able to update it to the branch and now my project builds fine. This leads to a question: If I check out a sourcetree on a branch and then later someone adds a new file on that branch, should I not get the file when I do an update? As it turns out it looks like this file was added on the branch, but still my copy (on branch CVSNT_1_11_1_3_REL) did not automatically get this file. Apparently I am doing something in error here, but what? This is what I have done: 1) Checked out cvsnt (about a year ago) 2) Updated the module to branch CVSNT_1_11_1_3_REL This is where I have been since then. All files in the WinCvs pane shows the branch tag, so why do I not get the new files? When I look through the complete sourcetree I find that in some dirs the CVS subdir contains a file named Tag containing the single line: TCVSNT_1_11_1_3_REL but I note that the src dir is lacking this extra file. When does it get created? I assume this is where CVS keeps the knowledge on which branch it is handling. /Bo (Bo Berglund, developer in Sweden)
