Using dates is certainly a possibility, but you have to be a bit careful
about the date format. CVSup will accept dates of the format:
YYYY = year
mm = month
dd = month day [01..28, 01..30 or 00..31, depending on the month]
HH = hours
MM = minutes
SS = seconds
The format is also described in the manpage of cvsup:
# This specifies a date that should be used to select the
# revisions that are checked out from the CVS repository. The
# client will receive the revisions that were in effect at the
# specified date and time.
# At present, the date format is inflexible. All 17 or 19
# characters must be specified, exactly as shown. For the years
# 2000 and beyond, specify the century cc. For earlier years,
# specify only the last two digits yy. Dates and times are
# considered to be GMT. The default date is `.', which means
# ``as late as possible''.
Thus, you can update to a particular date *within* the RELENG_4 branch,
by using both a tag=RELENG_4 and a date=2007.01.05.22.00.00 :)
Please note that the dates specified in date=YY.mm.dd.HH.MM.SS format
are in UTC, so if you are living in a different timezone, some
adjustments may be necessary.
