Ok, I created a branch tag test-1-1-4 which cvs associates with branch
1.1.4 right?

So, when I add a new file, CVS tells me it is adding it on test-1-1-4,
so obviously it knows I want to add it there.  To me that would mean
branch 1.1.4.  Obviously I don't understand cvs.

cvs add: scheduling file `file3' for addition on branch `test-1-1-4'

Yes, I know the revision numbers are for CVS internal use, but I think
it'd be nice if it were for both CVS and me.  Anyways, thanks for the
info and sorry for wasting bandwidth on a question asked so much.
