Sorry, just to be extra confusing our main development branch is not
actually the main line! (By the main line I mean the one with revision
numbers 1.1, 1.2, 1.3 etc) To merge the main line into another branch simply
specify "HEAD" in the "Only with this rev/tag" box. (Can someone else
confirm that please, it's not something I do very often so I'm not sure.) If
you want to change your active copy to the main line from a branch, you tick
the "Reset any sticky date/tag/-k options" box. This puts the -A flag on the
update. When you are working on the main line, no text should appear in the
"Tag" details in the main WinCVS window.
