Hi,

I have a file revision of 1.44 (and tagged as 14.5) in cvs.I then created
another revision 1.45 and committed with new changes.

Now I want to get to 1.44 and do some updates on that and again tag it as
14.5?How do I do this?Iam using Eclipse 3.3.1.1

Thanks.

Doesn't the Eclipse/CVS integration have a "Replace with..." -> "Previous Revision..." or something like that?

What does it say when you try to commit?

This is the error I get :


The server reported an error while performing the "cvs commit" command.
<project name>: cvs commit: sticky tag `xxx_v14_r5' for file `src/.../test.java' is not a branch
<project name>: cvs [commit aborted]: correct above errors first!
