I'm going to branch today too. Our last build off of Main came to a halt
this weekend due to our release. I have not continued to build off of the
mainline, nor branched yet.
I just want to rule out the possibility of any errors. Please tell me if I'm
on the right track.
I'm going to do a complete clean check out of the last build based on its
C:\>cvs co -r build99 proj1
C:\>cvs tag -R -b branch99
Will this ensure that build100 will be the next build off of Main and
branch99 is my current release?

Hi. I'm new to branching, I always used it just as tagging versions, never
joining back with head... so pleas excuse me being naive :)
I'd like to know if it's possible to know the exact date when a branching
has been applied, without sticky dates, since I have none in my
I'd like to diff some versions with the head, but using diff files from
the original branching date to the lates branched version, and then but it
back on head... but I need the branching date! :)
In future, instead of relying on the date always apply a non-branch tag at
the same time as the branch tag. I usually recommend that you create the
non-branch tag first, then use the -r option to create the branch tag, e.g.:
cvs tag branch_name_base
cvs tag -r branch_name_base -b branch_name
Now, you don't have to try to figure out when the tag was applied, you just
specify '-r branch_name_base' in your diff command.
