Hello! I experience the following problem: I have a file A, all files in the repo have been tagged REL1, afterwards i rename file A to B. When I now check out REL1 i get B instead of A. This messes with build procedures. The Problem seems to be, that .directory_history,v is being created on the first rename. So it misses all tags prior its creation. And as CVS doenst know that there should be used the old name, it uses the new name. I cope with the problem by doing "cvs rtag -r 1.2 <tag> <path>/directory_history" after renaming, but this would have to be done with all tags and all dirs. How can I trigger the creation of all directory_history without renaming any files? Regards, Robert.
