I am attempting to document the procedure for preparing a CVS sandbox which can be used to produce a build for a patch release. Example: I have a repository with 3 files. File1.txt File2.txt File3.txt I have applied a tag to all of these files names rel_c1234567 After the release went into production, a bug was found which required a modification to file2.txt. The developer modified file2.txt and tagged with with the name patch_change. How can I combine the production tag with this new tag which only contains this one modified file? This will extract my current production files: cvs co -r rel_c1234567 1dev cvsnt server: Updating 1dev U 1dev/add.txt U 1dev/file1.txt U 1dev/file2.txt U 1dev/file3.txt I would then expect to be able to cd into the 1dev directory and execute a cvs up -r patch_change and pull in only file3.txt, but that isn't the case. This is what I see: $ cvs up -r patch_change cvsnt server: Updating . cvsnt server: file1.txt is no longer in the repository cvsnt server: file2.txt is no longer in the repository U file3.txt It removed the other files. What am I doing wrong? Is this even possible without checking the repositories out separately and combining them using OS specific commands like cp ?
