Subject RE: using ant to tag a cvs repository

Tagging is what you want.  Branching is not a good idea for every build.
However, when you make a major release, it's usually a good idea to create
a branch for that release so that you can continue to make bug fixes on that
release, while still working on new features on your mainline.

Subject: using ant to tag a cvs repository

we're using ant tasks to do our qa/production builds. it pulls a branch/tag
from cvs and does what it needs to build the artifact.  currently, we're not
"tagging" that build so that we can re-pull that exact copy out of cvs. i'm
not explictly familiar with cvs, so, two questions.  is tagging what i want
to use, or a branch? i don't really want to branch each time we do a qa
build.  does anyone have an example of a ant cvs task that does what i'm
after? here's what we currently use to do the build:

			package="${cvs.module}" tag="${tag}"
dest="${cvs.module.dest}" />

much thanks!
