Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to I've branched the CVS tree for OACS 4.5
cvs mailto:-firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvsroot -r oacs-4-5 -d openacs-4-5 -P openacs-4
If you want to check to make sure that things work as expected, look in one of the convenient CVS/Tag files conveniently used by CVS to track tone of the convenient CVS/Tag files conveniently used by CVS to track tags. It should have a line that looks like "Toacs-4-5" in it.
You don't have to use "-P" (prune) with "-r" because "-r" implies it, but you should when checking out the development tree, so I just use it all the time.
To check out the development branch, try:
cvs mailto:-email@example.com:/cvsroot -d openacs-4-devel openacs-4
if you want to use the directory naming convention I'm going to use for sanity's sake.
