Hi there !

I would like to use the $Name$ Keyword in my java source. To do this, I added the line:

public final static String cvsRelease = new String("$Name$");

to my source. Then, I tagged it "prerelease-1_0". To get the substitution, I executed

cvs -d ":pserver:address@hidden:/usr/local/cvsroot" checkout -r prerelease-1_0 UserAccount

but the line just expanded to

public final static String cvsRelease = new String("$Name:  $");

I thought, there should stand "$Name: prerelease-1_0$" ??? Other tags ($id$...) work just fine.

Is the ta prerelease-1_0 a branch tag or a normal tag? If it is a branch tag, then it won't expand. I've griped about this on this list before (check for my previous messages).
