On 09-02 I sent the following message to the mailing list. No one answered
Hoping not to be unpolite I send it again. Maybe someone can help me.
Tank you again.

Hi all,
I think that I have missed up my repository and I am very worried about it.
The last time I updated a module in my working directory the CVS server
said that some file where not present in the repository and cancelled them
from my working dir. Starting from that moment I was unable to recover
Before the update I removed a TAG from the module in the repository.
So I tried to use the last backup of the repository. I saved  the current
repository with a different name and restored my last Friday backup.
The file on my current working directory has a sticky tag
(LADDER_WIN2000_0_2_1) that was not present when I did  the backup of the
repository, it is a branch name that was added after the backup. It seems
that the repository and the working directory are no more "syncronized".

Now I get the following message when I try to update the directory:

cvs update -P -A RSGEFRAN.C (in directory F:\Projects\Ladder\)
cvs [update aborted]: missing expected branches in

***** CVS exited normally with code 1 *****

I get the same message if I try to commit. Do you think that removing the
tag created the problem I am facing ?
What can I do to get rid of this problem ?

If you need more information about the problem feel free to ask me.

Thank you in advance.

Alberto Giordano
