Hi Ricardo,

First of all: are you able to check out the files using that branch
name ?
If you have trouble accessing the files, it might be due to file
See this:

For seeing only log entries related to branch B1 do "cvs log -rB1
[files ...]".
Note that you should put the branch name immediately after the "-r"

Other than this: It is not clear from your description what your
problem is: what do you mean when you say "the lines of code
from that branch aren't getting counted" ?
It is also not clear whether you committed your changed on the branch
and the other person merged them to the trunk and committed to the
trunk, or you never committed any of your changes and the other person
had committed them on the branch.
It should not matter who did the merge from the branch, unless file
permissions were set to restrict access by some of the users.
