We've had a patch submitted that'll be a part of the next next 2.5.04 build in a few weeks time.  Be sure to keep an eye on this list for the annoucement.  Also it's an option that needs to be enabled in the control panel (or on linux in the /etc/cvsnt/PServer config file).

Hi Arthur,

Don't want to steal the OP thread, but what would you consider to be a LOT
fo branches?
I work for a manufactoring company and due to the software design we do an
official release every two weeks to the factory floor. I'm creating a
branch for each of these and then creating a tag if we need to release a
bug fix on the build branch. This creates a fair number of branches and
tags. Too many?
