A while ago there was a thread here about how to best update a site that was
based on 4.7.x, yet used some modules that did not have the DRUPAL-4-7
branch. This was back when the tag was new and most modules had not used it
yet. I found this command and was happily using it:
cvs update -dPf -r DRUPAL-4-7
(the '-f' means get the files even if there is no DRUPAL-4-7 tag.)
Well I'm not using it so happily anymore. Recently all the modules/*.module
files were moved. So instead of modules/user.module you have
modules/user/user.module. This change was made to DRUPAL-HEAD.
Now, a consequence of using the CVS command above is that you update
modules/user.module, but you also get a copy of modules/user/user.module.
Because to CVS, its a new file that you asked for when specifying -f and -d.
It's worth noting that drupal apparently finds the files in modules/ first.
So my site runs with the DRUPAL-4-7 code and it took me a while to even
This is just a warning to anyone else in the habit of using that command.
(I'm not trying to start a XYZ is better than CVS thread.)
