What tip?  The tip of the trunk or the tip of the branch?  What I
really want is to know is any file where the _base_ of the branch is
not the same as the _tip_ of the branch.  Say I branched PROJ_1234 when
foo.c was 1.18 and bar.c was 1.12 then edited foo.c to make
I want a CVS command that'll list foo.c but not bar.c.  Alternatively,
where is PROJ1234's branch tag on a file with more than two places in
it's revision number.  I can describe what I want lots of ways but
don't know how to ask CVS the question.

Not too complicated.  One other developer and I cooperating closely.

Not in my experience.  TkCVS prompts you through adding soem tags it
