Just so I'm keeping up, since I create tarballs from the tree before building -- what kind of reset do I do? GIT = (Great Indecipherable Technology) In theory backing up should be simple, but I've never done it. Whatever reset we do has to back out all the updates from that point forward so when I step through the tree and create tarballs, I get what I'm supposed to get when I tar the source up. Do we have a consensus on Tim's: git reset --hard HEAD git checkout <hash> executed from within each module? OK, I'm going with this :) -- David C. Rankin, J.D.,P.E.
