I haven't tried that, but I think it should work. Check the
version.sh file after your `cvs update' to make sure you got the
version you expected.
It will work, HOWEVER it's '-r release-21-0', not '-R'. -R means
'work recursively', which is the default anyway (and the 'release-21-0'
will be interpreted as a module name and the command will fail).
'-r' is what you want. Starting from an existing checked-out tree will
me much faster than checking out from scratch, as only diffs will be sent.
And adding '-z3' just after 'cvs' will make it much faster. I suggest
'cvs -z3 -q update -r release-21-0 -P -d' to get exactly what you want.
