In the netbsd-soc project, we have a problem with the CVS repository: one of our students has imported code into netbsd-soc/hurdt/src, and a checkout of that directory now leads to an internal CVS error:
% cvs -z5 -d :ext:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvsroot/netbsd-soc co hurdt
cvs [checkout aborted]: internal error: bad branch tag in checkout
I wonder if you can just nuke the netbsd-soc/hurdt/src directory and all its contents from the CVS repository, and we'd start over again?
The sources there are imported from a developer's harddisk, and no version history is currently present that can be lost - the trouble apparently started on the initial import.
For any questions, please send email to hubertf@NetBSD.org.
