Hi Derek,

I see what you mean about diff vs log, but my v1_0 is definitely an
ancestor of v1_1 (case 1) - we defined branch1 to be rooted at v1_0.
v1_0 is conceptually on the same branch as v1_1 - it's just at the
base.  This is analogous to the example in the manual:


cvs rtag -b -r v1_0 branch1 ...


So, the command "cvs log -N -rv1_0::v1_1 ..." to get logs for changes
between v1_0 and v1_1 should be well defined.  I would think that
anyone who uses branches for maintenance releases would want to do
this to generate changelogs.  Is this the way to do it or is there a
better way?  How do you guys generate changelogs?


Hmm. The news item in the NEWS file has this happening between 1.11.1pq and 1.11.2:

Changes from 1.11.1p1 to 1.11.2:

[ . . . ]

* The interpretation of revision ranges using :: in "log" and "rlog"
has changed: a::b now excludes the log message from revision a but
includes the log message from revision b.  Also, revision ranges that
cross branch points should now work.

but I just double-checked the tags and it looks like Larry didn't make this change until after 1.11.2.

cvs1-11-2: 1.73

[ . . . ]

revision 1.74
date: 2002/04/19 18:03:59;  author: scjones;  state: Exp;  lines: +73 -22
* log.c (log_expand_revlist): First cut at code to allow logging
between a revision and *any* ancestor, not just one explicitly on
the same branch (e.g., from 1.1 to
revision 1.73
date: 2002/03/17 20:13:59;  author: scjones;  state: Exp;  lines: +45 -26
* log.c (cvslog, log_fileproc): Add -S option to suppress head or
file name if no revisions selected.
* sanity.sh (log): New tests for above.

Hmm. Half of the change mentioned in the NEWS shows up in rev 1.72. Anyhow, could you try the development version of CVS and let me know if it works for you?
