Re: Newbie from CVS: Issue checking out from tag

Wow!

Thanks for the really fast replies from all of you! What you all
mentioned makes good sense, but the issue I am still trying to get my
head around is identifying tags from branches.

In my case, the RELEASE_3_3_2_BUILD_2 tag was done on a branch
(RELEASE_3_3_MAINT). How can I identify where a tag comes from (trunk
or branch)?

Thanks,

Michael
