Re: RES: Checking out only files NEWER than given date/revision

Hi Marcelo.

The reason is simple. At the begining of the project we had some
sources and include files supplied "out-of-the-box" with a commercial
product. Than we done some customizations -- some files were added,
some were changed, some were untouched.

The main idea is to filter out the untouched files, so they are
separated from out-of-the-box ones.

The reason for this is that files out-of-the-box can be automatically
patched while patching the whole product with official patch. The
patch is prepared outside to our project. Our changes are not known to
the product vendor, and most propably would be corrupted during such a
patch. But having original and customized files separated, we can
apply the patch and merge it manually to our sources if needed.

Filtering out the untouched files is to keep the directory structure
as clean as possible (it is huge and messy already as an
"out-of-the-box" product).

Of course the whole thing can be done with Perl/Bash scripting (as I
mentioned), but I was hoping that there is a little automagic switch
in CVS.

Best regards,
