Hmm. I'll checkout a known label and check:
diamond at inlinux:~/work2/shannon/scu/isup(0)> cvs update -r s16xv_gen_gateway_isuph_1-1 ISUPH.EXE
diamond at inlinux:~/work2/shannon/scu/isup(0)> cvs status ISUPH.EXE
File: ISUPH.EXE Status: Up-to-date
Working revision: 22.214.171.124
Repository revision: 126.96.36.199 /opt/cvsroot/shannon/scu/isup/ISUPH.EXE,v
Sticky Tag: s16xv_gen_gateway_isuph_1-1 (revision: 188.8.131.52)
Sticky Date: (none) ^^^^^^^^
Sticky Options: -kb ^^^^^^^^
Note that it says 'revision' instead of 'branch'. If i do 'cvs status -v
ISUPH.EXE' it prints out all tags (labels & branches) for that file. The
lines for s16xv_gen_gateway_isuph_1-1 and linx_gateway are:
linux_gateway (branch: 1.26.4)
s16xv_gen_gateway_isuph_1-1 (revision: 184.108.40.206)
So, unless i'm missing something, it's definetely a branch. I'm kinda
hesitant to make another branch and add the file to that because this is
a production cvs repository, and cluttering it up with unwanted branches
is frowned upon.
