Would a two-step process work for you ? Recently I've been thinking
about a "wrapper" project. Something that would work thus:
$ cvs checkout X-wrapper
and the README file would say:
Run "sh checkout.sh" to get the rest of the tree. Bye.
The checkout.sh script would contain these commands,
cvs checkout C
cvs checkout -r branch_2-5 A
cvs checkout B
and by running it you would get the correct revision of
each subtree. The script is rev-controlled, so it can track
changes in branch tags when subprojects get merged to
I guess this sort of thing (programmability) comes more
naturally in *nix. Bah, even Windows lets you write
a checkout.bat, so it will work there too.
