I am looking for a way to achieve what I would intuitively write:
cvs diff -r RELENG_6 -D <date1> -D <date2>
Some people would point me to the info-cvs mailing-list for this
question doesn't seem to be related to FreeBSD. Nonetheless FreeBSD 6
has cvs 1.11.17-FreeBSD and I am pretty sure that cvs guys would to me
to use a newer version of cvs: this is indeed a FAQ . Starting at
version 1.12.12, cvs can handle the following syntax:
cvs diff -r <tag>:<date> -r <tag>:<date>
The proposed workaround works but it implies to have write access to
the repository. Moreover tagging the whole src/ tree is a bit overkill
for such a task.
I've read somewhere it is possible to use "cvs diff -j <date>:<tag>",
but I wasn't able to confirm this.
Any clue or pointers are welcome.
PS: In the meantime, one can use "cvs update -r <branch> -D <date>" but
"cvs status" reveals only a sticky tag. The sticky date is lost,
probably because the CVS/Entries file can handle either flag "T<tag>"
or "D<date>" and not both together. Does any one know how to
workaround this, or if it has been addressed in later version of cvs ?
