TRUNK is just lingo, it is no real CVS item. But HEAD is, it is the automatic tag for the tip of the mainline (Trunk).

Yes, I was trying to explain how to use WinCVS to merge latest files on the Trunk into a Branch that had been branched of previously. Would you use update -jTRUNK or update -jHEAD for this? Or is there a different way of doing it?
