Forum OpenACS Q&A: cvs HEAD checkout using "openacs-4" when HEAD is actually "OpenACS 5"

Request notifications

Now that HEAD is "OpenACS 5", it's a bit confusing to grab a fresh, full cvs checkout with

cvs -z3 -d co openacs-4

I realize the historical reasons for this and recognize that changing the directory naming in cvs is at best more difficult than it's worth.

Maybe the CVS Instructions here could explain that to get "OpenACS 5" you still ask cvs for "openacs-4"?

Cleaning it up, I suppose, will require a surgical operatoin on CVS repository -- renaming it from openacs-4 to openacs...
