On the other hand, why does capistrano calculate the latest
the sources? A cvs co always returns the latest revision unless you
specify otherwise. In which case the -D “…” is useless. Does anybody
know the answer?
Since Capistrano can deploy code to multiple servers, using an explicit
revision is essential to make certain all servers retrieve the same
revision, otherwise someone committing during deployment could cause
different versions to be distributed to different nodes.
