Dear fellow developers,

for your convenience, here's a micro CVS HowTo:

- initial checkout the head of the main/development branch:
        cvs -d<user>@cvs.sf.net:/cvsroot/monetdb co -P MonetDB

- initial checkout the head of a release branch:
        cvs -d<user>@cvs.sf.net:/cvsroot/monetdb co -P -rMonetDB_4-3-16 MonetDB

- tranforming a check-out main/development branch into a checked-out release branch:
        cvs up -dP -rMonetDB_4-3-16

- tranforming a check-out release branch into a checked-out main/development branch:
        cvs up -dP -A

- updating a check-out main/development or release branch:
        cvs up -dP

- checking, whether your current check-out it a main/development or release branch:
        cat CVS/Tag
  main/development branch: CVS/Tag does not exist
  release branch:          CVS/Tag contains branch name/tag

- checking you own changes (preferably prior to checkin):
