Subject RE: 3.2.2 Release?
Date Fri, 02 Feb 2001 20:44:02 GMT
You are correct, tomcat_32 is the appropriate tag.  tomcat_32 is a branch
tag so if you use cvs to check out jakarta-tomcat like

cvs co -r tomcat_32 jakarta-tomcat

then you'll get the latest version of all files on this branch.  This is
referred to as the "tip" of the branch.

The labels like tomcat_32_final and tomcat_321_final label a particular
version of a file so the command

cvs co -r tomcat_321_final jakarta-tomcat

will retrieve the versions of all the files that make up the Tomcat 3.2.1

The code that is (most likely) destined to become Tomcat 3.3 is the main
branch of the repository, often referred to as the "HEAD".  To get this code
from cvs use a command like

cvs co jakarta-tomcat

When Tomcat 3.3 is released a new branch will be created called tomcat_33
and this will form the basis for all bug fixes and patches for the 3.3
release.  The HEAD will then become the code base for any new feature
development of the 3.x repository.
