Hello all,

I would like to merge from branch to trunk from a specific date forward.
Is this possible?
If so, what would be the correct date format?  Ideally I would like to
provide a date such as >=2007-05-23 to give me everything from May 23,
2007 forward but CVS is giving me a "Can't parse date/time:

Your help is appreciated ...

To merge using a date, I think you need to include the branch tag.  I 
*believe* something like this is what you are after (untested):

cvs up -j tag:date -j tag

where the date is formatted as:


The second -j with the tag alone specifies the most recent point of that 
branch, whatever date that might happen to be.

I haven't tested this, but based on my limited knowledge and experience, 
it's what I would try first.
