Storing static code

Hi all,

WE have an existing cvs setup where we would like to hold the original
code that the vendor has sent out - before we mod'd it - so we can do
diffs against the original code (assume we originally imported code that
had already been mod'd) to find out what has changed.

Our thinking goes something like this.

1. Create a branch.
2. Checkout and remove contents of that branch
- we then have an empty directory on our local copy
3. Copy the original vendor code in
4. cvs add and commit it

This would, in theory, leave us with a copy of the vendor code in a branch
of it's own.

How does this sound ?

One last question - once we've done this can we make it read-only in CVS
(without making it r/o at the o/s level) ?

Cheers - Steve
