Ticket #10347 (closed: fixed)
Unable to unlock OSCMT CVS repository
|Reported by:||rphall||Owned by:||nhruby|
I'm the project administrator for the OSCMT project at SourceForge. I locked and checked out the CVS repository for OSCMT using "adminrepo --checkout cvs". I deleted a top-level directory (com.choicemaker.cm.urm.adaptor) that had been added erroneously. Then I attempted to save the changes and release the locks on the repository using "adminrepo --save cvs". The save operation failed with the message "Unable to save the repo copy for oscmt."
Next, I tried to repeat the above sequence, but the first step ("adminrepo --checkout cvs") failed with the message "The repository lock failed."
Next, I tried to release stale locks using "adminrepo --unlock cvs". The unlock operation failed with the message "Unable to unlock the repo copy for oscmt."
At this point, no adminrepo commands work; the CVS repository is locked; and I'm unable to access the repository either as an admin (via "adminrepo") or as a client (via a CVS client).
