Using a parameter for the CVS branch

Engstrom, John
Is it possible to setup a Hudson project using CVS and having the CVS branch be a Parameter?  I searched the archives for this list and found that almost a year ago someone asked the same question and the answer at the time was SVN could do it but CVS couldn't.  The only way to accomplish using the cvs branch tag as a parameter to the build was to not use Source Code Management in the Hudson project but instead have Hudson run a shell script on the target which passes the string parameter to the script as an environment variable.

I guess I'm wondering if the ability to use a parameter in the branch field of CVS has been added or if anyone know whether it's even being worked on.

Thanks,
John Engstrom

RE: RE: Using a parameter for the CVS branch

Swanson, Ronald
I was looking for this feature as well...

Is it not available because there isnt a place to do the substitution
before CVS is called...



Thank you

ron
