Re: Maintain Directory Structure When Tagging Files

Since I haven't had any response to this scenario, I assume people
aren't really doing things this way. That makes me wonder, then, how
other *are* handling hotfix packaging and delivery. Do you ship the
entire code base when only a few files have been changed? If not, how
do you maintain the directory structure for the few files that *have*
changed?
