If you added the new file on Branch_1_2 then it does not exist on the trunk (HEAD). When you do a cvs update, you are updating your local checkout with the latest from the repository. If you want the file to also be on the trunk, you have to do a separate add and commit there. After that you should be able to update from HEAD and get that file.

I having trouble, maybe understanding, with sticky tags.

This is what I did:

We have a development with the main branch (HEAD) and a 1.2 branch which we
are about to close development on, and build a new 1.3 branch from HEAD. The
problem is that I added a new file in the 1.2 branch and updated it to the
HEAD with:

$ cvs up -r Branch_1_2 newfile

The problem is that it gets a sticky tag of Branch_1_2 and I can't get rid of
it. If I use -A in the update it eliminates the file, which is not what I

Any ideas?
