Run "cvs up -A" and you will be able to commit.

You don't really want to "delete" the sticky tag (that term is a bit
misleading), so much as to disassociate your working directory from that
precise version (1.2) so you can advance to 1.3 when you commit.

If you got into this problem trying to get an old version of the file, use
"cvs up -r1.2 -p file > file" to avoid it in the future.

I cannot commit some files at the moment, when trying I get this

[test:] adam% cvs commit -m "updating" index.php
cvs server: sticky tag `1.2' for file `index.php' is not a branch
cvs [server aborted]: correct above errors first!

If I do a cvs status, I get

[test:] adam% cvs status -v index.php
File: index.php         Status: Locally Modified

   Working revision:    1.2
   Repository revision: 1.2
   Sticky Tag:          1.2
   Sticky Date:         (none)
   Sticky Options:      (none)

   Existing Tags:
        No Tags Exist

But I am not sure how to fix it.... If I try and delete the 1.2 sticky tag
it says that a tag must begin with a letter.

Any ideas how to fix this problem?

Thanks for any help
