Tag a Repository without having to check out first in CVS

0 votes

Is this a way to tag and entire repository structure without having to check it out first. We have a huge repository about 2GB of data at a remote site. Running a old version of CVS 1.11.23. Yeah I know its old, but I cant do anything about it.

Something like

cvs tag

Best answer

cvs rtag
("rtag" = "remote-tag")

cvs tag

I have not used it for ages, but IIRC,
cvs -d

rtag should do exactly what you want. (Check the documentation and test it before performing it on a production server!)

Sorry it's been so long since I've done this.... in looking at the manual I can't seem to find it. simple question I have a CVS repository in /repository with a few directories already existing, for example "tools", "reports", "proj" etc. I want to add "documentation". Just the directory. the Developer will add the files later.

why don't I see it easily? I'll keep looking but in case it's so simple.

Let's say that I have created a sandbox containing code from a branch

 cvs co -r  project

I then spend a few weeks implementing changes in that sandbox (on the branch). In the meantime, other developers have committed changes to the trunk.

I then want to pull the latest changes to the trunk into my sandbox (on the branch). Will this command work in my sandbox to accomplish this?

cvs update -j HEAD

We have stuck in integrating CVS with Bugzilla. We tried some online documents i.e. CVS Zilla, which we are unable to download it.

Is there any step by step document which we can follow?
