Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.

Creating a branch means the following:

1) Tag with the -b flag. The branch tag name is something like
Branch_MyTest or similar
2) Update to the branch tag (cvs update -r Branch_MyTest)
3) Edit some files in the sandbox
4) Commit the edits

It is not until step 4 that any of the files in the branch will change
revision number. Until then they will keep their old revisions.
After the commit there will be two new numbers added to the revision to
reflect the branch revision. The number of decimal points on any file is
always odd (1 for files on trunk, 3 for files committed on the first
level branch, 5 for files committed to a branch off of a branch etc):




Best regards,

Subject: Re: [cvsnt] Re: Branch "1"

I just got the information from a client, that they created a branch
branch of the normal main-trunk revisions 1.1, 1.2, ...) with the
"1" somehow and now wanted to get to know, whether this is as-designed
or by 
abusing a possible bug in CVS(NT).

Bo, I don't have the requested information.

Best regards,
Thomas Singer
