I am trying to (without much success) to figure out how to upgrade my
system using CVS
If I run the following:-
cvs -z9 -d:pserver:anonymous:@cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/wikipedia co
-rREL1_5 -P phase3
I connect to the server and it downloads the files to a directory called
phase3 in the directory from where I run the command.
What I have is a pruned version of Mediawiki in a directory called "w".
I then use symbolic links to that directory.
How do I modify the command line so that it updates to the directory
name I want and only updates the files that are present??
