When multiple Boost developers want to collaborate on a new library, they
currently create a directory under the CVS boost development directory.
This isn't really satisfactory as once the library is accepted, all the
sub-directories and files have to be recreated under the final directories
(boost and libs) and the development sub-directories deleted.
It also seems to me to not be using CVS to its fullest. What would make
more sense to me is to initially put the directories and files in their
final locations, and simply mark them as branches during development.
So far so good. But doing that will leave the initially committed version
of each file as part of the main trunk. So the questions are,
How do you tag (or otherwise mark) files as not part of the main trunk?
Is there any way to do the same with directories?
