I have a question to which I hope the answer is easy.  If I want to
increment the revision number of the main branch, say from 1.x to 2.x,
shouldn't the following command work?


cvs commit -r 2 <file>


On my system, client = wincvs and server =, the server
always returns "nothing known about 2, correct above errors".  Am I doing
something wrong?  All I want to do is basically create a new revision tree.
