on both win32 cvs Ver 1.11.6 (cygwin) and linux cvs Ver 1.11.1p2(redhat) when
checking out the SVG_20020806_BRANCH ( a partial branch) [updating an existing
brnch tree] cvs-mirror randomly dies when pulling the tree. error returned is :
"cvs [server aborted]: no such tag SVG_20020806_BRANCH"

this is preventing the automated building of the SVG Branch

to duplicate:

pull new SVG_20020806_BRANCH
pull again - random die in SeaMonkeyAll pull or mozilla/other-licenses/libical
what commands are you using to check out and update?  Are you using the Makefile?

A quick check shows there are no files on the SVG_20020806_BRANCH within
mozilla/other-licenses/libical, so that error message would be accurate if
you're explicitly pulling that directory with that branch tag.

Looking at the that's on the SVG_20020806_BRANCH, it looks like
there's not supposed to be any files in mozilla/other-licenses/libical on that
branch. is passing an extra flag to cvs to prevent that error (and pull HEAD
if that tag doesn't exist for a particular flag) when pulling using it.  If you
pull manually I would assume you'd need to reproduce that.

libical pulls OK maybe 80% of the time

it's pulled with the SVG Tag because it uses $(CVSCO) which the SVG branch sets to include the "-f -r SVG_20020806_BRANCH" tag

pull is always done with "make -f pull_all"
I don't claim to be an expert on CVS beyond what I pointed out already, so I'll
defer to Leaf at this point.
