I meant of course how they should know that EMACS_22_BASE exists.

What's wrong with "cvs log"?

Just that I have no idea where to find the information.

You don't need to find it, it will look right at you: "cvs log" lists
all the branches that are known to the repository.  And a name such as
EMACS_22_BASE is sufficiently self-explanatory.

Thanks Eli, I see what you mean now, but I believe it could be made much easier for those of us that do not know very much about CVS.

I think Lennart meant that he didn't know where to find out that the
command "cvs log" existed, and was relevant; that he hadn't guessed that
there was such a command.

That is true.

Lennart: you must have CVS installed on your machine, somehow; it will
contain a file cvs.texi (or similar), which you can compile into an info
file and then read on Emacs.  There are MS-Windows versions of gunzip,
tar and makeinfo floating around on the Internet.  Do this - it's well
worth the bother.

Thanks Alan. It looks a bit different on MS-Windows. But I can get the documentation on the net.
