I'm having a problem with cvs not adding the main project directory into
the Entries file although it checks it out ok.  The build won't tag that
directory after the checkout because it's not listed in the CVS/Entries
file.  The Entries.log will show the directory instead until I do a cvs
update.  After that, the CVS/Entries file contains the projects
directory.  I shouldn't have to do an update to fix this problem

That's not a problem -- that's the way CVS is designed to work.  If
Entries.log exists, you *must* apply the changes in it to the Entries
file before processing it.  See the manual for details:


A clarification, please: when you say "you must apply the changes" who is "you"? Should that not be CVS? And if so, then CVS is not behaving correctly because Mariellen has pointed out that the tag command will not tag directories listed in Entries.log.

Or am I missing something?
