I appreciate the URLs, but I think you're misinterpreting what I was asking. First, your comment about "isn't anything in place yet to let you track "stable",", That's not true. You could do this in cvsup, but seeing as I always cvsup the complete FreeBSD cvs archive, I would just do a checkout from my present archive using the stable branch I was interested. Do a "cvs status -v" of /usr/src/Makefile to get a complete listing of the names and numbers for all of the tags and branches you can checkout. In cvs, such things are sticky, so following a particular branch is no trick at all. Of course, clearing sticky tags/dates/branches that you set is equally easy to do. I can't figure out why you were telling me that stuff about HEAD and other branches. I think you my be wrong is what I *think* you said, you can branch any directory you want, at all. You can even branch a branch. Branches go against files, and cvs is rather stupid about directories. That's actually one of the things I like about svn, it knows about directories. I just need to know how to go about grabbing & updating FreeBSD's entire subversion archive. Once I grab that archive, I can play at my will, affecting no one else, I think (like cvs). What I was really after was a way to fetch the FreeBSD subversion archive. I already have a correct cvs-supfile to use with cvsup, to allow me to do daily updates of my cvs archive. If I found out how to get the subversion one instead, I guess I would stop tracking the cvs archive. I don't know if I'd use something like cvs2svn to convert my present archive, or just fetch the new archive from scratch, I need to see what's the recommended way to go. But I do need to figure out how to get the subversion archive (not a particular branch of the archive, the whole kit and kaboodle). > > A. > > _______________________________________________ > firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list > http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions > To unsubscribe, send any mail to > "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org" -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (FreeBSD) Comment: Using GnuPG with Mozilla - http://enigmail.mozdev.org iEYEARECAAYFAknT10kACgkQz62J6PPcoOk85wCeKG4Izziyrte7N+8jcfKGAkz0 6E8Amwae3pq9cv+Gn71ua1q4HCJ+jDLp =Gp0/ -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
