Unhappy

Labels in Source Safe are not useful for getting back to a project state! Appart from any other problem, if you have deleted files or moved them since the label, Source Safe can not generate the state of the project as labeled.

To work around the problem we generate a branched version of any project that we may wish to get back to (in particular, at release time). After our next release we are changing to CVS specifically to avoid this problem!
