Hi Luigi, Thanks for the explanation, I have around 1000s of files my repository to its not feasible to manually change each and every file to get a version. So i have used the touch to change the whole repository . Looks OK till now. As you mentioned i now have to get a version in order for the other branches to derive from it.. So i have resorted on force commit.. *cvs commit -f -R Product_1_branch* However i'm getting an error stating " $ cvs commit -f -R *Product_1_branch* cvs commit: nothing known about `*Product_1_branch*' cvs [commit aborted]: correct above errors first! I have already this branch present. Please suggest. On Fri, Aug 29, 2008 at 3:29 PM, Luigi D. Sandon <cp at sandon.it> wrote: > > not all the files have sub-version.
