Re: [Gnu-arch-users] CVS gateway using cscvs -- tags and branches?

CSCVS tries to construct a mapping of tag names to changeset revisions.
It doesn't try hard enough, and creates tags on every branch (not only
the branches they make sense for), so you need to know what branch a tag
was created for to get output that makes sense.

This can be accessed via "cscvs cache -B", or by directly using sqlite
to read the database cscvs constructs at CVS/Catalog.sqlite.

Finally, note that Robert Collins is working on a new and improved CSCVS
that should be vastly better than preceding versions in terms of, among
other things, accuracy of output. Using his version would be a Good
