cvsforwardport(1) forwardport the last change in a branch to HEAD


cvsforwardport file ...


For each file given on the command line, cvsforwardport will attempt to determine the last change made to the file in the primary CVS branch and then forwardport that change to HEAD. The branch name is hard-coded; see below.

The changes to be forwardported will be displayed on screen, and you will have the chance to confirm or abort before any commits are made.

The files must be checked out from the branch when you run this utility.

This utility is part of the KDE Software Development Kit.


The branch tag is hard-coded into the script (currently it is set to KDE_3_4_BRANCH).

If you abort (i.e., you do not make the suggested commits), your files will be checked out from HEAD (and not from the branch as they were before).


This utility was written by Dirk Mueller and David Faure.
