I am thinking that it doesn't like your date_spec. Try using "2006-08-20
22:00"  with your cvs rtag -D command instead.

Subject: rtag problems


I made a mistake and neglected to tag all of our repositories prior to
making a fairly large change. No big deal, I thought, I know the date of
the last commit and the date of the change, I can rtag the repository
now at a time between those two. However, rtag doesn't seem to do what I
thought it did.

I can check out a module from the date in question.

% cvs -d <repos> checkout -D "2006/8/20 22:00" adagio_itar cvs checkout:
Updating adagio_itar U adagio_itar/Apps_adagio_itar.C U
adagio_itar/adagio_itar_sn.xml cvs checkout: Updating adagio_itar/rtest
cvs checkout: Updating adagio_itar/rtest/null U
adagio_itar/rtest/null/.cvsignore U adagio_itar/rtest/null/null.i U

When I rtag it cvs indicates that it's doing it:

% cvs -d <repos> rtag -D "2006/8/20 22:00" test_tag adagio_itar cvs
rtag: Tagging adagio_itar cvs rtag: Tagging adagio_itar/rtest cvs rtag:
Tagging adagio_itar/rtest/null

but when I try to check out from the tag it fails:

% rm -rf adagio_itar
% cvs -d <repos> checkout -r test_tag adagio_itar cvs [checkout
aborted]: no such tag test_tag

Doing 'cvs log' on one of the files doesn't show the tag in the list of
symbolic names.

Of course I could simply go into the directory after the first checkout
and use 'cvs tag', but I'd like to know what I'm doing wrong. What am I
missing? (Also, section 4.6 clearly indicates that rtag is better. ;) )
