This all assumes that I've already tagged all files with 'rc2_root'
I basically want to:
I don't see from the GUI how I can do this. (the -r part).
The idea here, is that I want to make absolutely certain what revisions are used to make the branch. So in my sandbox, I confirm I have the revisions of the files that I want, and then tag them all with 'rc2_root'. Then when making the branch, I can tell CVS to "use this tag as the basis of the branch". I know that I can simply issue a "cvs update" to make sure no-one else has made changes, immediately before doing my branch. But... in the seconds between doing that, and actually doing the branch, perhaps someone else has commited a change (i'm imaging a much larger workforce than I currently work in, but that's what paranoia is all about, right?)
