Hi. I'm new to branching, I always used it just as tagging versions, never joining back with head... so pleas excuse me being naive :)

I'd like to know if it's possible to know the exact date when a branching has been applied, without sticky dates, since I have none in my repository.

I'd like to diff some versions with the head, but using diff files from the original branching date to the lates branched version, and then but it back on head... but I need the branching date! :)

In future, instead of relying on the date always apply a non-branch tag at the same time as the branch tag. I usually recommend that you create the non-branch tag first, then use the -r option to create the branch tag, e.g.:

cvs tag branch_name_base
cvs tag -r branch_name_base -b branch_name

Now, you don't have to try to figure out when the tag was applied, you just specify '-r branch_name_base' in your diff command.
