Why doesn't this work?
cvs update -D '22 Mar 2007 9:30:00 +0000' -C -d -P -S -f -R -r HEAD script-resources It says:
  cvs [update aborted]: Can't parse date/time: '22
if I use "" instead of '', it says:
  cvs server: nothing known about script-resources

cvs works with iso 8601 dates:
The manual page does indicate something like
"22 Mar 2007 9:30" or "22 Mar 2007 09:30"
should work, but sticking to
"2007-03-22T09:30:00+00:00" is more likely to work consistently.

be aware of the version(s) of CVS you are running, and be aware of the deltas between 1.11 and 1.12 time handling... _IIRC_ 11 reports times in log and history in UTC, but 12 reports in local time, I am not sure which CVSNT does.

hope this helps.
