pls help me out.
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.

You probably want a better backup regime anyway.

You might use branching.

I haven't checked it up myself, but try searching up the CVSup script - it
is for mirroring repositories, and might be what you need.
