Re: Tag by date on a branch?

Hi Joerg,

The the standard version of cvs available from, the -D
switch only applies to the mainline and will not work with a branch.

If you need/want a version of cvs that lets -D work with branches,
then you may wish to checkout a copy of the FreeBSD version of cvs
which has been extended to allow -D to work with a -r branch.

You may checkout your own copy of the FreeBSD CVS sources using the

  cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:/home/ncvs login
  CVS password: anoncvs
  cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:/home/ncvs co contrib_cvs

or just browse through the web via

to take a look at the sources. The current top of tree incorporates
all of the changes for cvs 1.11.
