CVS checkout by date

Hello All,

We are using cvs 1.11 on Solaris in local mode and on EST.

I have a question.

I felt all along ( knowing that cvs stores all the times as GMT ) and then converts the time to whatever time zone the machine is on at the time it is actually showing the time stamp to the user in reports such as status of file and also the log messages.

Now I have a situation where this does not seem to be true. I get diff file versions then are expected.

for e.g. if I issue a co command and then cvs stat -v filename ( please see the actual output of the log after the point 3).

1) cvs co -D"2002/02/04 8:00" I get version 1.1 which is correct.

2) cvs co  -D"2002/02/04 16:00" I get version 1.3 when i would I expect 1.1 still

3) cvs co  -D"2002/02/04 12:00" I get version 1.2 which is ok.

4) cvs co -D"2002/02/06 17:00" I get version 1.4 when I would expect 1.3

at the command prompt :

> cvs log c/s/a/e/j/

Could some one kindly explain what is going wrong here my concept ( that is the time cvs expects for co command with date that of the GMT ) or is it a cvs bug ?

Thank you very much in advance for your time.
