Recursive behaviour of CVS

Dear List Members

I would like to take advantage of the recursive features of CVS to tag

My intention is to tag a subdirectory of a software product e.g. rel-1-0, to
copy new or modified files to the subdirectory and to tag the subdirectory
again e.g. rel-2-0. This will permit me to switch between the two releases
of software in the directory and will facilitate the updating of software on
a live system.


Software Product

Tagging the SubDir allows me to switch between software releases in the
SubDir but does not change the software release in the SubSubDir.

I have tried using the -R command to force recursion, I have also tried the
-f command to request that options from the .cvsrc file are ignored.

I am using the jCVS client to tag and commit the files.

I would be most grateful for any advice that would resolve this problem.
