Frequently Asked Questions

How do I create a release?

Let's assume you're using the polyphred repository and that you're working in a directory called "sandbox" in your home directory. Let's create polyphred release 4.25. After checking out the sources, just issue
cvs rtag -Fa polyphred_4_25 polyphred

If you ever want to look at the source for polyphred 4.25, just run

cvs checkout -r polyphred_4_25 polyphred
and you've got it.
