I'm sure there's a bunch of ways to work with your configuration, but it
sounds like a bit of an administrative headache. If the head branch is your
baseline, I'd consider merging the changes from your branched files back
into the head branch and re-branch the entire module, point-tag the module,
and run with that configuration instead of managing a set of mixed branched
files within a module.

Cheers, Tracy.

If I have a moderately sized module to check out, (say 150 to 200 files in
10 subdirectories), and only half a dozen or so of the files have branches,
what is the best way to proceed?  (The tagged files are not collected in
one sub-directory, and there are reasons for keeping them where they are.
There are a couple of modules like this.)

I tried `cvs co -f -r tagname modname`

but then `cvs status any_file_not_tagged`

shows that the -r tag stuck, and that there is now no corresponding
repository file for this working copy.  I had hoped that this would have
just checked out the head branch, but then updated files with the tag, if
the tag existed for that file.

I'm still relatively free to make organisational changes to my repository.
