6.4. Getting Version Data

The cvsversion task retrieves the version of the CVS client and server. For example, this cvsversion element stores the server's version number in the property cvsServerVersion, and the client's version in cvsClientVersion:

<cvsversion cvsroot=":pserver:steven@STEVE:/home/steven/repository"      password="opensesame"     cvsserverproperty="cvsServerVersion"     cvsclientproperty="cvsClientVersion" />

The attributes for this task appear in Table 6-5.
