This patch allows me to specify a timestamp for cvs checkouts, so I can grab the "last known good" date from the bonsai page, e.g.: MOZ_CO_DATE="04/20/99 10:25:49 PDT" gmake -f client.mk checkout Note that there seem to be some problems if you specify MOZ_CO_BRANCH and MOZ_CO_DATE simultaneously, and I'm not quite sure how to handle clearing sticky tags, so this might need a little more work, but for this purpose it works for me.

Summary: client.mk: Need easy way to pull by date.
You can do this today with the following, MOZ_CO_FLAGS='-D"04/20/99 10:25:49 PDT" -P' gmake -f client.mk checkout Is this too gross? I just don't want to add an environment variable to every cvs flag. I will probably apply to patch, but let me think about it for a little bit.

I added it. No big deal. I was just trying to think of a way to make it even easier to pull by date. It would be cool if the Build Configurator could spit out an option that is that last known good build. I personally can never remember how to type in the date formate. Marking fixed.
I added pull by date to the Build Configurator: http://cvs-mirror.mozilla.org/webtools/build/config.cgi
