first of all, thanks for sticking with me. Einstein said that the
clear definition of a problem was 90% of
the solution.  well that's been my problem. unable to clearly state
the problem.

i appreciate your patience.

it is basically that i have created a branch and wish to continue
further fixes on it.

i guess that hasn't been clear to me. i think that has been my

now... RCP_5_0_1 is a branch.  what i want to do is do any further
RCP_5_0 development or bug fixes along this branch.  so after creating
the branch i did a couple of small things and tagged RCP_5_0_2.
everything is in order, but if i checkout RCP_5_0_2 the files are
sticky and cannot change.

i guess i stay in the RCP_5_0_1 branch and change/commit there.
always.   ??

the confusion comes because we used to tag a linear trunk  RCP_x_y_x.
check it out and resume editing/commiting.  YOU CANNOT DO THAT ON A
BRANCH apparently.

so i have  a sandbox for RCP_5_0_1 which started with the branch
RCP_5_0_1 with subsequent edits and commits and at some point a tag
(RCP_5_0_2).  then i can check that tag out, but not work on it (which
is the point of sticky tags i guess)

do i have this right yet?

however i don't think i created a tag RCP_5_0_1, which means i cannot
ever reproduce anything between RCP_5_0 and  RCP_5_0_2.  is that
