cvs : commit in branch

Hi, i'm using Version Controlo system integrated in Idea 5.0.2
I have to commit a local file to a particular branch.
The commit is executed on the current Sticky, so if i have checked out a particular branch or update from a particular branch it's all right.
But what about if working on the Head and wanted to commit on particular branch without update first?

Regards,
Gabriele

Hi Gaby,

What's wrong with first updating to branch (even with modified files) before
committing?

Cause i don't need to update.
I need to work in mainline and when everything it's all right i would like to commit on old branches the exact version i am working on.
I think it's slower making an update with branch, conflicts?, commit, making an update with Reset sticky data (-A) option to return in the Head...

Maybe it is not standard feature and so not included, but i would appreciate the command "commit in branch" - something similar to update Use version (-r).

I was surprised to discover that such a feature existed in CVS. I would say hardly anybody uses it because most people have separate working directories for each branch that they're working on. I would find it very confusing to work on a HEAD working copy and then commit to a branch.

Anyway, file a feature request in JIRA.

Ciao,
Gordon
