Hi friends,

I have one problem. I want to use ant script to build drop that accesses some files from pervious tag version from CVS and some files from new tag from local (development)

e.g. I have 6 files named A, B, C, D, E, F, G.
I have all these files with say, tag number: t_16 in CVS (previous version t_15).
I have updated 2 files say, A & B with tag number t_17.
Rest files are C, D, E.. with tag number t_16.

Now, what I need is to build drop that will give 2 files which has t_17 and rest it should retrieve version t_15 from CVS.

I am relatively new to Ant Script. Any help with example will be appreciated.
