Hi! I cannot recall the exact command, as I've used WinCVS GUI. I've created a very short example that reproduced my problem (a module with two subdirs, each with a single text file): cvs -w -d :sspi:fsrcvs:/CVS/swmaint/team_repos import -I ! -I CVS -m test -n -- sticky_tag_example cvs -w -d :sspi:fsrcvs:/CVS/swmaint/team_repos checkout -P -- sticky_tag_example cvs -w tag -- bld_1 cvs -w update -P -d -r bld_1 Looking into Tag files from each CVS/ directory in my sandbox, I can see that both subdirs have the 'N' type, but the root directory has the 'T' type. If I try to add a file in a subdir (cvs -w add -- foo.c) I get 'cvs server: cannot add file on non-branch tag bld_1' But if I add a file in the root folder of the module (same cvs -w add -- foo.c) it says: cvs server: scheduling file `foo.c' for addition on branch `bld_1' cvs server: use 'cvs commit' to add this file permanently and when I commit, I have version 220.127.116.11 of my newly added foo.c file on a branch called 'bld_1'.

When I checkout a non-branch tag and try and add a file in an existing directory I get this error: cvsnt server: cannot add file on non-branch tag CVSNT_2_5_03_3309 Please reply to the group not me personally.
