Thanks Larry.  We thought about that... but since the target branch that we want to be HEAD  is a branch off of a brnach off of a branch off of a branch etc... is it possible to merge straight from that into head?

that merge would still execute somewhat cleanly?

Not really.

What you can do instead is to move the desired stuff to the trunk with a

        cvs up -jHEAD -jPROD_BRANCH
        cvs ci -m'Replace HEAD with PROD_BRANCH'

You may want to create a new branch before you do that in case you
decide you want to continue development of what used to be the head of
the trunk.
