Re: vendor branching and merge

When you imported the latest sources, you applied two tags:  The vendor
branch tag, and the vendor version tag.  The import applied the vendor
version tag only to those files that were actually imported.  Have you
tried applying the vendor version tag to the latest revisions of all
files on the vendor branch?

hi, I use branches exclusively for vendor source. I was going merrily
along with branching and merging till I hit this scenario.
In the interest of time, the vendor sent only those files that were
different from the last set they sent.
Now when I try to merge, cvs schedules all the missing files for
removal. I tried both

cvs co [-rHEAD] -d testdir1 module
cd testdir1
cvs update -j last_import_tag -j this_import_tag


cvs co -jrelease_tag (matches head rev) -j this_import_tag

The best thing I can think of doing is checking out the head revision,
copying over the changed files and commiting. Brute force, but anyone
got a better way?
