Er, yes. As I read the docs, if you check out with _any_ tag or date,
you will get sticky data.

No, it is correct. The point is to allow you to do something like
# good enough for me
cvs checkout -r sumo-2001-09-29 packages
# but I want the flashiest and trashiest JDE
cd xemacs-packages/jde; cvs update -A
# and the TRAMP package is new and almost certainly broken
cd ../tramp; cvs update -A
# and Lord knows any change to edict would be an improvement
cd ../../mule-packages/edict; cvs update -A
Now we pick all of those up with a cvs update from the package source
What behavior do you want? If you want bleeding edge, use -A. If you
want current sumo configuration, I guess Steve should start doing a
moving tag "sumo-current" with his sumo releases, as well as the dated
ones. We don't have any branches in packages currently (AFAIK), and
that's not the right way to manage this anyway.
