Hi, I have a question about CVSNT. Can you please post it on the list I had a question on locking a CVS branch and since you guys are subject matters experts :), I thought I should consult you for the same. This is the situation: I have some code in the main trunk. I forked a new branch (lets call it STB_BR) from the main trunk. Currently, the code on the branch is exactly same as the main branch as there has been no development after branching (given a file, the revision is same on both the branches). I would like to lock the files in the STB_BR branch and allow developers to change files in the main trunk. When I try to lock the STB_BR branch, it lock the latest version of all the files in the branch. But the problem is, since it is locking a version of the file (and not a file in a branch) and this version of the file is the latest version on the main trunk too, it has essentially locked the file on the main trunk too. Is there a way to avoid this scenario. Though the same version of a file is present on two branches, i would like to lock the file in one branch and not on the other. The command I used to lock the branch is "cvs admin -lSTB_BR" -- cvs_usr
