Re: Integration Builds and Tags

I'm sorry to be a pain. I guess it's that I've been a CVS user for so
many years; and I'm stuck in the CVS paradigm.

It often takes a two-by-four to get one to think out of the old box.

I'm going to have to "rethink" the SCM model that I'm used to... in
light of what I have heard.

I've been trying to use some of the Patterns found in Brad's book:
"Software Configuration Management"... I guess I need to give that book
a hard re-read.
