I'm less than a noob. Trying to commit a patch for indexpage.module 4.6 
got this message from the cvs:

cvs commit: sticky tag `DRUPAL-4-6' for file `indexpage.module' is not a 
cvs [commit aborted]: correct above errors first!

I've commited other patches to other modules for 4.6 before and got no 
problems. Is this anything related to your post? Can someone give me a 
quick hand on this?
