CVS_LOCAL_BRANCH_NUM feature


From: Mark D. Baushke
Subject: CVS_LOCAL_BRANCH_NUM feature
Date: Mon, 03 Mar 2003 03:37:29 -0800

Hi Folks,

Does anyone object to giving the canoncial cvs version the hack that is
needed to support some CVSup local modifications?

There has been some talk in recent months (see the URL: and messages in
the thread:
http://www.mail-archive.com/address@hidden/msg38563.html)
that it may be desirable to have a command-line switch to control the
selection of the magic branch number. This would allow users to put it
into their .cvsrc file. I have NOT tried to implement any of those
suggestions.

A number of web pages that talk about how to use CVSup mention the need
for this hack. Two examples of such pages may be found here:

    http://www.cs.wustl.edu/~nanbor/CVSUP/cvs-repo-sync.html
and
    http://www.scriptkiddie.org/freebsd/setting_up_local_repo.html

Comments anyone?

        Thanks,
        -- Mark
