CVS branching


I have a newbie question about CVS branching.
I am commiting my changes to the MAIN branch, but now I need to make a new paralel development, so I'll create a new branch called MY_BRANCH.

But what is going to have this new branch? Automatically all the contents of the MAIN branch? Or will it be empty until I upload new files?

Thanks a lot.

Check out

The branch will include everything in the project up to and including the commit/revision that you branch from. Commits into this branch will not affect the trunk or previous branch.


branch, cvs
