Hello, I know this has been discussed before, but I still have a question about merge points. I think I'm using them in the "normal" way. For example, I branched a file at revision 1.29 from HEAD to bMyBranch. I committed a few revisions on the branch, reaching 18.104.22.168. I also committed a revision 1.30 on HEAD. To keep the branch in sync with HEAD, I ran a merge from HEAD to bMyBranch. This brings up the merge arrows in the various GUIs (from the merge point info). After the last merge from HEAD to bMyBranch, I have now an arrow from 1.34 (HEAD) to 22.214.171.124 (bMyBranch). As I'm done on the branch, I copy the contents of bMyBranch to HEAD and commit them there. What I would like to see in the revision graph is a final merge arrow from the tip of the branch (126.96.36.199 for this file) to the corresponding HEAD revision (1.35 for this file); so to speak as a documentation of this "merge". ("Merge" here in quotes because it's not technically a merge, but functionally.) Is there a command sequence that I can use that gives me this? As discussed previously, I can't really use the cvsnt merge command to merge back from the branch to HEAD. Well, come to think of it, I probably could use the merge command to merge back from bMyBranch to HEAD, discard the merge results and replace the files on HEAD (after the merge but before the associated commit) with the files of the branch. I guess that would be one way to do it -- but is there a more straightforward way? Thanks, Gerhard
