Dear all

Can the cvs have multiple trunks.

Basically I have a requirement where i need mulitple projects/products and i
need to maintain different branches (similar to the trunk) for each project.

This is do-able and i am able to dedicate differnet branches for each
products, however when the developers try to create their own branches from
these main branches, the newly created branch always gets derived from the
Trunk. Is there any setting required to make it point to the branches,
rather than trunk.

I am not sure if I can make all the files to point to the Mainbranches when
checkedout from their individual branches.

For eg:

 | ___________Product_1_Branch

I have forcibly checked the complete product folder by touching all the
files into their respective product branches. Now when the developer tries
to create a private branch from the product branch, i still see that the
branch is getting derived from the TRunk rather from their product branches
(checked with the revision graph).

Please let me know if am missing something or can i have mulitple trunks.
