Subject: Re: Older builds back up site - anyone interested?
From: sophana (jobarjo78_at_yahoo.fr)
you are right
the entire history is kept in the cvs server
I've tried it:
cvs update -D 2004-04-01
(you can also use checkout if it is the first time)
and you have the whole repository at the april 1st 2004 state.
'cvs log' for the history of all changes.
