Re: Help merging vendor branch:

Hello again.

Okay...I am now officially lost.  ( and thoroughly confused! )  I have
read all the CVS manual and I have been screwing around with this for
several hours and I still can't get this to work.  I guess I really don't
understand how merging works.  Anyway, back to what I am trying to do.

Here is what I am doing, that is not working:

First I checkout the branch that I am working on:
        cvs -r co -r b_code_cleanup -d b_code_cleanup MG_HEDGE

Now I want to merge the vendor branch Doxygen, tag doxygen_1-3-4 to the
b_code_cleanup branch.

So I do cd to the b_code_cleanup directory and try the following:

cvs update -r doxygen_1-3-4 -d vendor MG_HEDGE
cvs update -r b_code_cleanup -j doxygen_1-3-4 -d vendor MG_HEDGE
cvs co -j b_code_cleanup -j HEAD MG_HEDGE/vendor/doxygen

as well as some other tries.  But nothing I do has worked?  Either the
entire vendor directory is removed with the exception of the doxygen
branch or the directory is created but in the wrong location or it looks
like it worked and I did a commit but then when I release the
b_code_cleanup and check it out again the doxygen files are still missing?

What am I doing wrong?
