Subject cvs update from a distant directory?
Date Mon, 24 Nov 2003 22:00:44 GMT


I'm wondering if there's an elegant way to update my working cvs
directory with a build.xml that is a few directories above.   For
example, let's say my layout looks like this:

/build/build.xml (the build file that does the update)
/code/branch1/REPOSITORY  (REPOSITORY is a working directory created
with cvs checkout).

So the question is, can that build.xml call a cvs update on the contents
of the REPOSITORY directory.

I could call the exec task to cd into the REPOSITORY and then fire off
the cvs update - but that seems dirty.

Thanks in advance,
