This is not a reply to ur query rather i am posting u a query. Bcoz i
thought what u have done i need to achieve almost the same. So pls help me
File: browse.jsp       Status: Up-to-date

   Working revision:
   Repository revision: /cvs/NewJSP/src/products/browse.jsp,v
   Sticky Tag:          (none)
   Sticky Date:         (none)
   Sticky Options:      -kb

   Existing Tags:
        NewJSP-2001_10_01-Branch1   (branch:
        NewJSP-2001_10_01-Tag1     (revision:
        NewJSP_Rel_1               (revision:
        init                            (revision:
        start                           (branch: 1.1.1)

Above output is a result of "cvs status -v" command for my prj.

1. everything whatever i did, i did it from client WinNT.(CVS server is
Tagging is done using rtag i.e "cvs rtag tagName moduleName"
Branching is done using rtag i.e "cvs rtag -b -r tagName branchName

Now questions :
1. Is my approach for Tagging & branching OK???
2. If it's Ok then why changes made on Main Trunk are visible on Branch as
well.Though i never merged main trunk with branch.

So pls suggest me what's wrong.

Subject: removing from trunk/branch


I've recently done a merge ( branch -> trunk ) and noticed
that alot of files were removed from the branch, but not
from the trunk.

I ran a cvs log and pulled up filenames for all files in a
"dead" state, which is somewhat tedious to go through,
but works ( I can tell from the commit messages whether
it had a dead revision because it was added on the branch,
or whether it was purposely removed from the branch ).

So I have a couple questions :

Is there a single command I can use to remove files from
both the trunk and the branch? "cvs remove" doesn't seem
to take many parameters.

Also, is this the right way to go about this? I basically
want to take all the work done on the branch the last couple
months, and move it to the trunk ( where seperate, but "unstable"
work has been happening ).

How should I deal with these files removed on the branch only?
