this is how i got it
beginning string was
then in tvs tortoise
i went to revision tab
i unchecked "use head branch"
i checked "choose branch or tag"
i clicked button "update list", i.e. update list of tags concerning jboss-mail
under the "branch or tag name" dropdown, it now listed just jboss-mail branches
i made sure "JBOSS_CS_1_0_M5" tag/revision was selected
then did checkout
here is the cvs string tortoise cvs used...
note: this is not the release branch, as M5 hasnt been released
In E:\jboss-versions\New Folder: "E:\Program Files\TortoiseCVS\cvs.exe" "-q" "checkout" "-r" "JBOSS_CS_1_0_M5" "-P" "jboss-mail"
i using windows, dont know what your using, but your bound to have issues, if using windows, and you have issues, let me know, might be able to help out, the developers might not be around much this week
Nice! I had the revision JBOSS_CS_1_0_M5 in the wrong location. Your comment sparked my mistake. Thanks a million. I got the source now. I'm happy!
Now I have the source do you really point JBOSS_HOME to a version 3.2?
I read the docs and found
Lastly, you'll need a recent JBoss 3.2 build mainly for running the tests (mail server per-se doesn't demand a very-recent version). We haven't tested with 4.0 yet, and recommend jboss-3.2.4RC2 or 3.2.4RC1 or later.
This is to build the JBOSS_CS_1_0_M5 revision
Is this correct??
or are the docs wrong.
Seems sort of stupid.
