I'm trying to use csup to get a single file at a certain date. In particular, I'm trying to get /usr/ports/UPDATING.
I made a copy of /usr/share/examples/cvsup/ports-supfile and made the following changes: # pick a server *default host=cvsup9.FreeBSD.org # Date to sync to # (jw) I use this so I can gradually update ports, instead of # getting too many things changing at once causing upgrade pain date=2009.11.12.00.00.00 I then run the command: csup -L2 -i 'UPDATING' path/to/my/supfile I have also tried 'UPDATING*', '*UPDATING*', and '/UPDATING*' since i'm not sure from the docs exactly what the -i pattern should look like. However, none of those work. What I want is to get the single file /usr/ports/UPDATING as of the date given in the supfile. What am I missing? Am I going about it entirely wrong?
