I have been really struggling with CVS for a week now and hope that someone on this list can help me.
Lets assume that I have a project with 2 file, and I created a repository and imported a module with these 2 files.
Next, I check them out to a working directory. Lets say, I edit reach a milestone and commit (version 1.2) and then make some more changes and commit (v 1.3) All this while, is at v 1.1
Now I tag the whole module as say, release-1 and I'm happy.
Now, I need to make changes to, but I want to start the versioning from 1.3, not from 1.1 ie, I want to bring my entire module to have a version 1.3, so that changes to any file from here on forth will be 1.4 (or and so on...)
How can I acheive this ? Been driving me nuts... BTW, I use wincvs with development on my hard disk only (for now).
Thanks in advance,

My first question would have to be why do you want to do this?. Imagine if you had 10 files, or 100 files, in your project. Would you have to bring them all to version 1.3? Even if most of them didn't change for release 1.3?
The whole point of a syatem like cvs is that the actual version numbers of the individual files are not especially significant. They only serve to distinguish versions of that file. You are free to group any set of any versions of any files into a release.
So are you still sure you want to do this?
