Ok, but why do you need the mergepoint if the file hasn't changed? In my
previous example revision would have mergepoint 1.4 in it, and that
should be sufficient for any future merges between Main and Dev2 shouldn't
it? Sorry if that's a daft question, but I'm not 100% sure how the
mergepoint stuff works yet. The whole reason we're using CVS is cos we're
running two parallel developments at the moment and I persuaded my PM that
CVS would be better for this than VSS which we've used previously.
