but after a CVS update to the latest release, we should be able to re-checkout the changes repository on top of our current installation

What would the cvs checkout/update commands look like?

On the risk of sounding naive:

  • cvs -d /cvsroot update -Pd -r oacs-X-Y
  • cvs -d /cvsroot update -Pd -r openacs-org (different repository)
  • This assumes, that the changes we are making to openacs.org are only *cosmetic* in nature (mainly templates).

I'm not extremely familiar with cvs but it is my understanding that it's not possible to update from a repository other than the one used for the initial checkout. And this kinda makes sense because there is (as far as I know) specification for one and only one repository (CVSROOT) within the cvs admin files (CVS directory) maintained in each directory.

I was hoping that there was some slick way to mix checkouts from two repositories. It sure would make my life easier.

Thanks,

Randy
