Re: cvs log problem

Sorry to spam everyone.  After a detailed investigation I found the log message
works correctly using cvs 1.11.5, but I also found that I cannot use log to
identify all changes between two tags.  I am trying to identify All changes by
using -- cvs log -rus-1-0-9-78::us-1-0-9-80 -- I have determined that cvs lists
all modifications between the two tags, but will not list additions or
deletions.  It appears that a file must have both tags or it is ignored.

I guess that it makes sense -- it is hard to list what is between if you only
have one end.

Does anyone know how to identify ALL changes between two tags?

I just upgraded by windows system from CVSNT 2.0.4(?) to cvs 1.11.5 and the log
appears to be working correctly now.  I will do some more detail checking, but
it looks good.

I am seeing some of the same problems.  There are times it seems to work, and
other times I just get the root directory files.

Is there a way of getting the latest version for a window's cvs client without
downloading the source and building it from scratch?  I believe it is my CVSNT
client that could be some of the problem.

Thanks for your help,
Larry Lords

There is nothing in the -S option that prevents recursion -- if you're
not seeing any files in subdirectories, it's because there aren't any
selected revisions in any of them.  Run the command without the -S and
see what "selected revisions:" is for those files.  If it's not zero and
you still don't see those files when you add -S, try upgrading to the
latest release of CVS (1.11.6) on both the client and the server.  If
that still doesn't help, let us know.
