Hello, When using commit identifiers with update/log/diff operations, aren't you supposed to get the revision before the commit when using "@<commitid" ? This does not seem to be the case with the initial revision on a branch: > cvs log -r"@954466fce284a11" ... revision 184.108.40.206 date: ...; commitid: 954466fce284a11; ... ... > cvs log -r"@<954466fce284a11" ... revision 220.127.116.11 <- expected revision 1.2 here ... Steps to reproduce: touch file.txt cvs add file.txt cvs ci -m "first rev" cvs tag -b branch1 file.txt echo text >> file.txt cvs ci -m "between branch" cvs up -rbranch1 file.txt echo text >> file.txt cvs ci -m "commit on branch1" cvs up -A cvs tag -b branch2 file.txt cvs up -rbranch2 file.txt echo text >> file.txt cvs ci -m "commit on branch2" cvs log file.txt Getting the "revision before" the revision 18.104.22.168 using commitid now yields revision 22.214.171.124. This is with CVSNT 2.5.03 build 2260. Thanks for any advice, Lars
