I'm forwarding an email from a coworker who is our configuration manager
and has a Clearcase background.  We however, use CVS in our office and
are attempting to implement some Clearcase techniques (features) in
CVS.  If you can provide any assistance in this area (Used both
Clearcase and CVS), your input would be greatly appreciated.  The
following inserted email explains what we are trying to accomplish.

>I tested out the "cvs checkout -j WMS_1006_RELEASE -j

what I did >NOT
>expect with others.
>For instance, with "cmd_ups_31_common_function.pc", I got version 1.70
of the >file

got an either >or

cvs to do for us,

cvs and

file based on >a set of "rules"(similar to the way config. specs. are
used in clearcase) which >specify branch/label tags and any other
criteria which might help identify the >"configuration" of all the files
that are in cvs which satisfy such "rules".
